If it's missing, the "Check Engine" light should be on. You need to read the code to figure out what the computer is telling you is wrong. Many repair shops will read the code for free and give you the code. After you get the code, put it into a Google search and you'll be in the ballpark.

You should take it back to whoever replaced your computers and tell him you found out there's only one computer that controls the entire engine including starting and running so he charged you for something you don't even have.

I'm reading between the lines a lot here, but for quite some time, cars have had impact sensors in the grill that shut off the fuel pump in a collision - this prevents pumping gas on a fire. https://onlineparts.toyotasouthatlanta.com/a/Toyota__Tacoma/48597635__6011910/AIR-BAG-COMPONENTS/8512505.html

There are actually two actuators, one is located in the transfer case and one on the front differential. the one on the transfer case provides power to both front and rear driveshafts, the front actuator must engage so that the front differential locks and provide traction to the front wheels. This means that even if the transfer case is engaged in 4x4 mode the front wheels will not have traction if the front diff actuator is not working.

Sounds like a transmission issue. Have the transmission checked. I assume this is an automatic.

It sounds like either the starter relay is faulty, the ignition switch is bad, or some interlock (maybe a security system) is preventing the start signal from getting to the starter solenoid. You'll need to use that test light to work backwards from the starter solenoid to see where the signal is no longer getting through during a normal start attempt.

After you reinstall the air cleaner, you may need to take the vehicle to a Toyota dealer to have the ECM computer reset. In some cases, disconnecting the battery doesn't do the trick.

the code refers to the air/fuel sensor--heater circuit response, bank 1 sensor 1
That indicates that the HO2S( heated oxygen sensor in the exhaust manifold bank 1) is faulty --possible wiring problem or sensor failure

Do you know if there has been Leak Stop or similar added in the past. If so, that can cause a blockage and the cooling system may need to be flushed. If not, another test you can try is to remove the thermostat completely. Since it is still warmer weather it will not be an issue other than it will take longer for the engine to warm up. If you are still seeing high temperatures I would suspect that your water pump is failing or has failed and is not moving enough water through the cooling system.

hi i have a code p0001, what do that mean and how can i fixed or where that part is located.

A relatively rare trouble code for Toyotas.. The most common cause here is a vacuum leak in the system that prevents fuel vapor from reaching the charcoal canister, where it is then sent to the engine via the opening of the PCV valve. To determine a leak test, you would need to visit a mechanic. But something you could do yourself is verify the fuel cap and filler neck are both clean and fit tightly together. Make sure there is no dirt, and the O-ring is not damaged/dirty/missing as this could allow fuel vapor to leak, thus triggering the sensor.

My personal guess here though would be a bad valve. In my line of work, I deal with faulty valves all the time. A valve consists of various moving parts and the ones that are solenoid operated, such as yours, can develop electrical faults over time. You can check the solenoid portion of the valve yourself using a multimeter set to Ohms and placing the two leads across the connector, one on each prong. Remove the power connector from the valve first of course. A typical solenoid will give a value something like 3 Ohms. (A solenoid is a coil of wire wrapped around a core which is usually attached to the device the coil is operating. When a current is applied, the coil forms an electromagnet that either pulls or pushes the core to cause valve operation. Your fuel injectors work in this way).
Should you see a reading less than 3 ohms, approaching zero, you have a short. If you see a very high reading or an "0L" or no reading at all, or "infinite", you have an open circuit. In both cases, the solenoid has failed and needs to be replaced.

Your canister could also be clogged, and despite Georgia's laws regarding the canister, it is a part of the purge system that needs to be present, and in good condition to allow proper operation.

I have included a link to a helpful information page which may further assist you.

Hope this helps!
