[DML] Fixing Idling Issue. (was: Re: EFI? Megasquirt?)

Hmm, don't know if you might be having problems simular to mine, but 
I had 2 big issues with my Idle Speed Circuit that I had to fix. And 
Maybe you've got something simular?

1. Idle Speed Micro Switch
Mine wasn't being tripped my the throttle. I had to bend the bracket 
up a bit, and that took care of it with no problems since.

2. Electrical Short in Idle Speed Motor wiring harness
I wasted money on a new ISM before I tested the wires, and found one 
had some really bad resistance. I found the wire, spliced in a new 
one, and the motor worked fine again. Now out of the 3, the one that 
went bad was the wire that causes the ISM to open. So my engine would 
just die whenever I took my foot off of the gas pedal. Perhaps you 
might have a bad wire that causes the valve to close, or something 
else in the circuit? A bad microswitch would cause this issue as well.

If you want more details, I can either e-mail instructions privately, 
or post them publicly for everyone else to benefit from as well.
