Will not idle unless my foot is on the gas. Has new battery, new sparkplugs. Not a fix, but temporary solution- "toe" the gas pedal and use the other foot to work the brake, after a short time, it runs by itself just fine. Still, I have no idea what's wrong with my car!

2001 Toyota RAV4 - 2.0L 4 Cylinder 131,000 mi,
RAV4 2001: Ignition turns on, engine runs for 20-30 seconds, then cuts off. Puzzle solved. No codes. Problem not in the fuel system or engine because engine runs. Problem was in the computer because it not sending directive to fuel pump to pump gas to the engine. Also not having codes come up indicates computer not functioning. (During heavy, bad thunderstorm, I felt a charge go through the vehicle. It must not have been a direct hit because vehicle was still running. Electricity arc-ed onto the car from somewhere. Eventually, this charge cause the computer to malfunction, die.) I replaced the computer and car works fine.
