Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Toyota Tundra V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 103, 00 miles
So I left the dome light on overnight in my 2003 Toyota Tundra, and needless to say it ran the battery down. I accidentally crossed the jumper cables on the car I tried to use to jump my truck (no joke. It was dark, I was in a hurry and connected the positive cable to the negative post and vice versa). So I used the seccond car that day, and jump started the truck that evening. I let it run for about ten minutes to charge the battery, turn it off, let it sit for a couple minutes then started it back up to make sure the battery held the charge. Everything seemed to work fine.
The next morning I go out start up the truck, put it in gear (auto transmission), and discover the accelerator no longer works. The truck will go into all gears and will move forward and reverse, but it will not accelerate. The check engine light is now on, and the transmission is rough when I shift into reverse (reverse only; drive is a smooth transitiion) as well. Did I short out an electrical sensor / transmitter? Is the problem the transmission or the accelerator? Any / all help will be greatly appreciated.
