2011 Toyota Highlander won’t accelerate after jumping it off.

Asked by Jess Nov 25, 2018 at 03:56 PM about the 2011 Toyota Highlander Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery light started flashing then I lost all
power to my car. Turned it off and it wouldn’t
start back up. Let it sit for about 24 hours
then jumped it off. Started right up. The
check engine light and slid light is on now
though and it won’t accelerate. It will not go
over 1500 rpm. However the battery and the
alternator both tested fine and the code the
scanner is throwing is for a TPS sensor,
which has been checked and is fine. The
battery is holding steady at a 13.3-13.8.

Check for a blown ( ETCS ) Electric Throttle Control System fuse

Is that 13.3 - 13.8 with high drain accessories on? I fixed many Toyotas with low range alternator readings from 13.2 - 13.4 volts. The ECU wants a certain range.

The fuses are fine, we ended up changing out the throttle body and now it’s throwing the throttle actuator sensor. Still in limp mode.
