2002 toyota tundra wont stay running will start and die right away.

Throttle control motor? No, never heard of one of those. Possibly a Mass Airflow Sensor. It sits inside your throttle body on most cars and measures the airflow into the intake. When it gets dirty or goes bad it really messes your car up. it is either in your throttle body or between the air filter and the throttle body either way it will be pretty simple to remove and clean. If it is your MAF then try to clean it first with MAF cleaner. They do have a cleaner specific for that at the auto parts store. You can usually clean them and be alright. Could save you alot of money. Hope I could be of some help. Good luck

Hi Nick,
I would plug in a new start relay. The start relay is on the side of the compressor.
If the new relay still will not start the compressor then the compressor has been damage from the power outage.

Don't bother trying to fix it, take it back and get a replacement (I assume that you bought it new, not second hand).

Jack it up try hitting starter with a hammer. if it works ,good chance its the starter solenoid. If it starts when cold its most likely the starter motor.

New battery but car still won't start also it really cold outside

First you should check the wire to the starter. If the horn or lights work but nothing hjappens when you start starter or starter solenoid is bad. I hope this helps you.

True Refrigeration GDM-26 Compressor problem?

More than likely you need a new compressor. It sounds like it's trying to start and then trips on it's "Klixon" overload. Call a commercial refer guy (not somebodys brother in law that works on A/C, it's NOT the same!)
