2005 scion tc 5 speed. 106xxx
Yesterday driving home car stalls out on the highway and power steering goes with it. Battery and oil light come on and won't restart immediately. Dash lights still work, headlights etc all work. Cranks over like it wants to start, but just won't fire.
After disconnecting the battery terminals and cleaning them, which were pretty dirty, fires right up and I drive it home. Today the same thing happens except this time when I try to restart the car rev's itself up to ~5000 rpm and dies. Again disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery intermittently fixes it.
The car runs strong through all gears up to redline even at WOT. I'm going to have the codes pulled this afternoon.
