Changing the Camshaft Timing Oil Control Valve Sensor. on 2008 Scion xD

When changing the sensor, do I need to reprogram the computer? I changed the sensor, and the car starts but doesn't stay on, it only stays on if I hit the gas.

ok, this may not apply to your toyota but try it any way, start the vehicle and keep foot on gas only a little bit try and hold it around 1500 RPM for a few minutes or untill the engine warms up it should stay running after that, if not you may need a scanner to reset the adaptives for the computer to relearn idle point, this happened to me on a 1993 chevy lumina z34 after i had replaced the alternator.

Recheck your work for any unhooked, improperly hooked or loose componets if it doesn't clear up after running it for awhile!
