having done Toyota parts in the past, that part number sounds like it is --maybe-- actually the Nippon Denso electrics component supplier part number for the part, rather than the Toyota replacement part number. Denso numbers often had part numbers grouped 5+4 like that...Toyota numbers are almost always 5+5 part numbers

Make sure the shift lever on the transmission is actually shifting the shaft that selects the gears.....Something is slipping where you installed the bushing.....Check for proper cable adjustment....Apply the E- Brake while working with cable to prevent accidental runaway........

sounds like the water is the culprit I think you should check your coil boots and spark plugs reset the computer by turning on the key to on position take off negative terminal on the battery leave it off for 2 minutes put it back on and the light should go out do you have a code reader it should tell you the code for your problem

I would think factory installed, but just look under the hood for a box with an alarm, key company on the box.

The best way is to ask a dealership[.

Yes - ABSOLUTELY C_maina,

Here in the USA places like AUTOZONE
(personal opinion = yuk) do FREE readings...

("FREE" can be pretty costly).

Typically giving them (A-zone) the OPPORTUNITY to sell
new OXYGEN SENSORS... (the intellectual equivalent
of buying a new THERMOMETER because you have a fever (the "NEW" oxy sensors TYPICALLY complain as well as the old ones...

this is a suggestion I would recommend SKIPPING...

((at least not BEFORE Sherlock Holmes ... has eliminate EVERY other possibility (like throttle position sensor: TPS)).
2003 TOYOTA COROLLA 1 8L L4 Throttle Position Sensor TPS RockAuto

Your car is the right age where your trouble could be anything from collapsing catalytic convertor/muffler, or any over fueling condition...

My very best suggestion... See if you have any EXHAUST shops that perform "FREE" READS...

Possibly bring those "reads" back here for another
(better ...more detailed) FIXYA answer.

Cross check their PARTS PRICES with your available sources on the internet (so at least you can negotiate a BETTER PRICE).
USA exhaust $$$...

Hope this helps

It is not a big deal. All the windows need re-learn after the battery is disconnected. To re-learn do the following steps:
1. Sit on a driver's seat. Switch on the ignition.
2. Push the window button to open the driver's window and and keep the button pressed for 3 to 5 seconds after the glass touches the bottom and release the button.
3. Similarly do the same to close the window.
4. Do the same with all the remaining windows one by one.
5. Now after all the windows are re-learned, they should now be operated with a driver's master switches.
Good Luck and thank you for visiting Fixya.
