I don't know what's happening now. I went to move the car last night. I soon as the key was in the "run" position, the engine cooling fans came on. The car would not idle at all when started. I went for a 2 minutes ride around the block. When I put the car in park it idles at 800-900 RPM. After the battery disconnect, it should idle high for at least 20 miles. I just tried the car this morning and it barely idled at all. When I kick the throttle, it stalls on decelaration. The fans kicked on again after the 3rd or 4th stall. I disconnected the battery and I'll let it sit for a while and see what happens. All I touched was the IACV to try and clean it.
No codes shown or codes pending. Hasn't been run long enough to cycle. It's as if the car didn't reset itself at all.
