OK...I've recently posted about a potential IAC problem that would
cause my car not to start unless I gave it gas...and then it would run
but the idle would be going crazy etc...eventually it would fix itself
after a couple of re-starts...
NOW, it hasn't done this since Monday...and it only did it two other
times within the past couple weeks...
Just a couple of minutes ago something dawned on me...each of the
three times the car did this, I had checked the OBD Codes just
Each time I would get home, pull into my drive-way, get out my
paperclip to check the codes, read the codes, take the paperclip
out...go inside for a few hours...come back out, and then "it" would
happen...the engine wouldn't start!!??
It's almost like the ECM is losing it's knowledge of the IAC or
something...but somehow checking the codes is the only thing that's
making this happen?
Are these THREE times just a coincidence(I don't think so), or is my
ECM really starting to do some crazy things...?
