I had a new battery installed and the car (2003 es300) will start, but won't idle. The car runs great with my foot on the gas pedle, but when I take it off the car quits. Thanks

Was it doing this before you replaced the battery? Sound like a Throttle position sensor issue. Any light lit up on the dash? Did you check fuel pressure?
