Uuummmmmm, errrrrrrrrr, mmmmmmmmmmm, what year is this? Looks like I need to do some searching. I know I have never cleaned the IAC and I don't remember when I cleaned the TB due to working on the other rigs.HenryJ wrote:.............Sounds like IAC valve problems, maybe. When was the last time you cleaned the TB and specifically the IAC valve?
Thanks for the run down and I'll look at the TB and IAC. I want to rule out the cap and rotor since I replaced it last month. The old one was in good shape but, will take a gander at it if, I pull the TB.HenryJ wrote:.............If you TB is really dirty, it may be worth your time to remove it for a thorough cleaning................While you are in there, the check of the cap and rotor comes back to mind. With the history you have had with them fouling (no reference to the floating "foul") I would inspect them again....................I would suspect an ignition coil if it just stalled on you, but the erratic idle doesn't really fit that scenario.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Correct! This is a case where the more expensive model is not necessarily better.HenryJ wrote:............I believe the Platinum uses a vibration sensor to disable it.

It wasn't a problem to install but, it was challenging to find a place that wasn't to hot. I can't remember where I put it now. I did think that it was a little "busy" with all the various wires that went to the vibration sensor and the buzzer. One nice feature is you can arm the system 2 ways. One retains enough juice to keep the clock on time and the other is a complete disco. My accidental arming is ALWAYS a complete disco.HenryJ wrote:Is the vibration sensor a problem? I thought it would be nice as it is a no hassle installation.
I have not connected the wire to disable mine during engine operation. I probably should, but I don't see a situation where I would need to run the vehicle with low voltage at this point.
