Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
First issue was the car accelerate by itself without stepping on the pedal. I Cleaned the throttle body and lubricates the cable's. Now the car runs like it was on cruise control, even though the cruise control was off. Example: I was driving 40mph or any speed, I removed my foot on the gas pedal and the car still running 40mph or any speed. The only way to slow it down is to step on the brake and full stop.
I would have the throttle position sensor tested. and like right way

you need to replace the coolant temperature sensor. It tells the computer that your car needs a high idle. As far as your running, you got some water displaced in your system. Change out the fuel filter, and pour a can of "Seafoam" in the tank. It will take a few miles, but that should fix your problem.

I just worked on this problem a couple of days ago. If the motor is a 3.0 liter. The idle control valve is located at the bottom of the throttlebody assembly right below the bore for the throttle butterflies..What usually causes this valve to go bad is the mechanical part of the sensor sticks as it becomes sludged or carboned up. Manufacturer claims that the valve cannot be cleaned and should only be replaced....It's a high dollar repair to replace this sensor as your engine coolant flows through this electrical valve. The valve idles the car fast when cold, as the antifreeze gets hot the valve drops the idle down.....I have successfully cleaned several of these valves and cured the dying problems...
First remove the air filter top cover and the tubes that connect to the throttlebody. In the right throttlebody you will see a port right before the butterfly. Under the throttlebody you have a black plastic sensor with a 2 wire terminal. Remove the 2 phillps screws and pull off the electrical part of the valve. you will feel a magnetic pull while removing. Remove slowly and catch the black sealing oring, and there will be a metal washer also.. The shaft that is exposed is the mechanical control of the valve. Rotate the shaft and it should feel sticky if bad..Using a throttlebody spray cleaner spray into the small square port of the right bore, rotate shaft and spray until stickfree.....Reassemble

i would check the brake light switch if it is not adjusted properly it make turn the brakes lights on when going over bumps and turn off the cruise.

Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.
