    We changed the computer in my 2001 4-runner and now it is throwing all kinds of codes like it is trying to shut itself down like it is being stolen and the dash cluster decided it was going to quit working also. Does any one know how to make it behave so I can drive it again?

    We changed it. It all started like the fuel pump went out at work. We changed the fuel pump and it would not start so we changed the computer. We had to change the fuel pump again and put the old computer in it. It will start and run but it keeps throwing codes like it is trying to be stolen. I need to know how to reboot the computer so it will quit throwing all these codes. If anyone knows how Please let me know.
