Re: [DML] VIN#04421 Lives Again and Rough Idle - Vacuum Leak


That's a good point.  I thought that's the way the switch is supposed
to be, 28.7 Ohms open circuit.  If 28.7 Ohms is incorrect, then idle
speed ECU can easily get confused, turning the idle speed motor on and
off randomly, causing idle problems.

Any of the Delorean parts vendors want to chime in about the
resistance values when a new idle micro-switch is open?  Rob?  DMCH?

for dwell and not FV circuit. What you need to see is a reading of 50%
of full scale when cold and a swing between 45 and 55% when hot.
Again, that's 50 percent of full scale and not 50 on the meter's scale.
