PostSubject: 4A-GE 20V idling problem   Sun Jul 07, 2013 9:06 pm

Hey guys,

My blacktop is currently having some idling problems after I reconnected the battery after installing an audio amplifier. It has started to rev at idle up to about 2 - 2.5k for a few seconds then will drop down to about 1 - 1.5k before raising again.

I have no idea what it could be and wondered if anyone else could shine some light??

Have you tried disconnecting the amp to see if it returns to normal? Maybe the amp is wired wrong.

Make sure it has a good earth to bare metal, failing that make sure all yours wires, terminals etc are all nice and tight too.

Okay... It randomly just fixed itself.
I'm going to install a vacuum block at some point soon

Oh, I guess you disconnected the battery when installing the amp? It sounds like the ECU got reset, and it had to do an adjustment to relearn the right settings.
