Question Answered: 

It's most probably the Idle Air Control valve. You can try cleaning it, there are several methods from light cleaning (by spraying throttle plate cleaner into the IAC port from the throttle body) to in depth cleaning by taking the IAC off of the throttle body.

Can you start with what the problem is?

Question Answered: 

Try (lightly) banging on the starter with a screwdriver or something, if it makes any difference, you've found your problem. If not, I'd investigate further into the ignition switch. Good luck

What are the codes?

Question Answered: 

There is a short somewhere. It could very well be a faulty resistor causing the short (it's located behind the glove box - no need to remove glove box for this). It's around $22 from the dealership. You can try removing it (2 phillips screws) and see if it's corroded. Good luck.

Question Answered: 

Did you clear the code(s) after the canister was replaced? Scan for any pending codes and if there are any, address them first. You can try disconnecting the battery and going for a test drive. Hopefully the monitors will reset. It's not about the miles driven, there are certain parameters that the computer needs to check before showing 'ready.'

If only one fan is working, check the connection/switch to the other fan. Even though both fans are supposed to come on at the same time, I think the fans are controlled independently of each other. When was the last time the water pump was replaced?

Question Asked: 

I have a 1999 Camry LE 5S-FE and it threw a P0171 code. I tested for vacuum leaks (visually and using a can of carb cleaner), did not find anything. What can I do next? I am trying to get a hold of a scan tool so I can gather freeze frame data and will report back. Which components can I test in the mean time? Thanks in advance for your help. I did have a P0446 code 2-3 weeks ago, replaced the charcoal canister with one from the dealer and reset the code. The code was gone after that. Now, I have this P0171 code - can they be related? The P0171 code is the only one that exists right now. Thanks.

Give us a better description. Do you hear anything at all? Any clicking sounds?

Check the resistor (it is located behind the glove box near the blower motor).
