 +Test for proper operation of the ISC:  Turn off the ignition and reset the ECU by removing battery backup power for at least 10 seconds, then restoring battery backup. ​ Then, with the ISC unbolted from the throttle body but plugged in to the wiring harness, turn on the ignition and observe the movement of the ISC.  The ISC should fully extend, then retract slightly. ​ If the ISC just quivers a bit but doesn'​t really move, suspect a problem with the ISC, the driver circuits in the ECU, or the wiring. ​ If the ISC fully retracts instead of fully extending, there is a wiring problem, perhaps a mismatch between '90 and '91+ engine harness and ISC.  Using a '90 harness with a '91+ ISC, or vice versa, will cause the ISC to operate backwards.
  
 Strange behavior can result from a bad Fast-Idle Air Valve. ​ This is a coolant-temperature controlled air valve that provides some of the additional air needed for fast idle during engine warm-up. ​ This valve is integral to the throttle body, so test by substitution or by blocking the FIAV passage with a block-off plate. Strange behavior can result from a bad Fast-Idle Air Valve. ​ This is a coolant-temperature controlled air valve that provides some of the additional air needed for fast idle during engine warm-up. ​ This valve is integral to the throttle body, so test by substitution or by blocking the FIAV passage with a block-off plate.
