After recently disconnecting the battery and replacing a headlamp fuse and a headlamp, my 2003 Toyota Camry will now run very rough and die soon after starting. Sometimes it the engine will cut out right away and sometimes it will run for a while, but still very rough. I pulled a few of the other 15A fuses to check the headlamp wasn't shorting out and just blowing the fuse. Is it possible I didn't get all of the fuses seated back down properly and that's why my engine is running rough/cutting out?

When you disconnect the battery the cars computer goes back to the original factory settings. Drive the car for about a half hour, like over 50 mph, and see if it goes back to normal. If not, post back.

You might want to also let the engine idle for about 15 min. with the AC on full cold..........then sit in the vehicle and idle the engine in drive with brakes applied for another 5 min. Place the car in park.....shut off the AC and shut her down. Start her back up and take it for a final road test.
