Does this model have anti theft?

Did a little research. Apparently there has been a lot of problems with the Camry 2003-2004 throttle bodies failing. When they fail, it's the same symptoms you are currently having. Check the fuse for your ECT, if it's good, you most likely have a failed throttle body. If this is the case, try a salvage yard or Ebay. Dealer parts are $850 or more for a new throttle body.
