If the check engine light is on it has to have a Diagnostic trouble Code (DTC), so in order to be able to help you I need to know the code, which is 4 digits starting with the letter P and the dealer should give it to you. By saying all power lost what exactly do you mean (power as electrical or drivability)? http://www.TRANSARTNC.com

If it was a P2445 code then it is the air pump. There are two of them. Mine had water in one of them. I went to the Toyota dealership and they wanted $1071 each. That was just for the part. The labor was extra. I disconnected the air pump and the check engine light still comes on but the truck doesn't go into limp mode. At least so far.
The Toyota local dealer (44663) has no clue what is wrong. They replaced the air pump and it still codes a 171p on the first warm-up (5 miles) and p171 and 174p the next warm-up cycle (from cold)....
