Thanks for the reply. I did open two boxes and do the repair and it did not fix the problem. I just checked every fuse in the car and I did not find any bad ones. I had someone start the car for me while I looked at the cable and it does pull initially, but then let's go after a few seconds. Everything I've read says it should stay pulled until 6000 rpms. I read another thread that states it could be the idle valve, I have no idea what or where this is. I also checked the IMRC plug for power with a test light while it was running and two wires have power. I swear I read somewhere that someone had a problem with it working initially and the opening, but I can't find that thread now.
