Re: [DML] High !dle 3000 RPM!

Try disconnecting your ECU. Black box with two plugs under the drivers side tray behind the seat. Pull both plugs and start the car. If it goes back to a good idle then you know what to replace.

When I started my D on Saturday, the idle went to 3000 RPM and wouldn't come down.  Tapping on the accelerator didn't work, looking at the throttle with the air cleaner off everything appeared OK.  I couldn't find anything wrong that I could see on the engine.  The accelerator cable came all the way back to the idle position, still 3000-3500 RPM.  I had to drive it about 15 miles and it wasn't fun when I had to stop.  I resorted to shutting it off at lights.
Does anyone know what's wrong or what I might check to fix the problem?  The idle has always been fine with infrequent "hunting" for idle but that was only like 700-900 RPM and not often.
Whatever ideas you might have for me to look at, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!
