Batteries typically only last 3 years, if your battery has not been replaced in its lifetime that is almost certainly the issue. If you take your vehicle to an auto parts store they will test your battery for you for free.

Check that you got all the wiring harnesses around the engine air breather box connected correctly. I go into great detail on how to connect them in this tutorial: sienna.html
