Fixing P2118 Toyota: Understanding and Resolving the Engine Control Module Issue

Are you having trouble with your car not responding when you press the gas pedal and staying at 1000 rpm? You might be dealing with a P-2118 throttle actuator control motor error. In this post, I will walk you through the steps of fixing this issue.

The first thing to do is to check the fuse box. It’s essential to inspect the fuses because sometimes a blown fuse can be the root cause of the problem. In this case, a blown 10-amp fuse was found in the ETCs section. After replacing the fuse and clearing the codes, the engine responded as normal, and the check engine light was no longer illuminated.

After the replacement, a code scanner was used to verify that no codes were stored and no pending codes were present, indicating that the issue was successfully resolved.

If you’re experiencing similar symptoms with your vehicle, checking the fuse box should be the first step in troubleshooting the P-2118 error. In many cases, such a simple fix can restore normal functionality to your car.
