Drive it a few days and it should straighen out on its own. Computer has to reset. This also happens when the battery is disconnected. Some have said 10 minutes is the limit for the car to have no battery disconnection (replacing, discharged, or
disconected). This happened to me twice when I replaced the battery and when I disconnected it and left it overnight while I got an electrical sensor/part.

SOURCE: 2002 camry battery changed, dies in idle

When you take your battery out and put a new one in all your computer controls have to be reset. You need to drive the car at 55 MPH for 2 min or so, stop, go through normal drive cycle, stop and go and then if it don't straighten out you need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve. Hope this helps. PHil

Check the manufacture's Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) rating.  Some manufacturers recommend a minimum CCA.  If your CCA is below the manufacturer's specs, it can cause your car to run erratically.  This also can cause problems with your computer and give you faulty DTC's. (Diagnostic Trouble Codes - Service Engine Soon Light)  This especially causes problems with General Motors cars.  I'm always hearing of people with these problems.  Let me know how it works.

SOURCE: Replaced the battery in 2002 camry now it won't idle

When you replace battery in 2002 Camry ECM tries to reset to factory levels. The reason it will not idle is that the throttle body is dirty and ECM thinks it should be new!! Clean throttle body with cleaner that is safe for tbs and this will fix your idle problem.

SOURCE: changed battery in 2002 camry and now it hesitates

drive it for a week or so the problem should correct itself, but if it doesn't do this procedure to clean the intake and idle motor.
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: Changed battery and now Camry will not idle.

We had a similar problem with our 2002 camry - we replaced the battery and alternator. The car would only stay running if I kept my foot on the gas. It turns out we had to replace the throttle body - apparently this is fairly common, but not common enough for a recall.

I have a 2002 toyota camry had to change the battery, and the car will not idle, have driven it for about an hour


Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes. This will flash the ECU and reset the cars values. It will take 1-200KM's for the ecu to read all the values and settle and the car to return to normal

You need to take the car to a computer specialist. My idle did not idle correctly after replacing the alternator and battery. It was a simple computer reset on the idling.

I have 2002 Toyota Camry also and mine did the same thing. I ended up having to put a battery in the vehicle 2 weeks later so you may want to get that tested. Mechanic told me it was the alternator but I tested the battery at Auto Zone and the battery was bad. I did this a year ago and has not happened again.

Changed battery and now Camry will not idle.


Was it idling before you changed the battery? If you were to clean out the throat of the aluminum inlet manifold just behind the throttle body with a parts cleaner product that is safe for plastics (sensors) the car will idle.
The engine features a intake valve cover vent that goes back into the front of the throttle body. After time, the vent tube deposits a lot of oil and gunk in the throttle body assembly and just behind it into the intake manifold.
