2003 camry v6

Asked by May 20, 2017 at 12:49 AM about the 2003 Toyota Camry SE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my a/c and power steer belt was in bad shape. I
went to replace it and i noticed my negitive battery
terminal was corroded.  So i decided to use hot
water to wash that away and cleaned up the
terminals. As i finished up with replacing the belt, i
went to start it and it would stay running... it turns
over but wont stay running unless i hold the gas
pedal down.. any suggestions or ideas...

Washed with water? I suspect you got some other electrical plug or component wet. Is the battery cable dry?

Yeah hot water washes away corrosion.. i dried of the terminals and wires.. i have done that many times and never had a problem..

Did you perhaps disconnect that corroded battery terminal to clean it? Any warning lights on or flashing when the engine is running?

Yeah cleaned the terminal i cleaned everything. I ended up cleaning up the throttle body and idle air control and it brought it back to idle. Seems to be good now.. very weird tho..thanks guys!

Very Good. I suspect after all that cleaning....the Computer for this vehicle needed to go through a "Re-Learn" process in order to bring her back to normal. Good Job.
