sad now..... code for imrc stuck open.....

Okay so from what I read so far....... I see it has to do with either the module or the lever.......... And on cfm website the billet lever is 34.00 bucks...... And the module is 200.00 benjies..... A huge difference so really what needs to be changed in order to get rid of this stupid code......... Thanks everybody in advance for all your helpful advice..... really enjoy this site......

Probably the box. There is a thread on here somewhere on how to fix them. (though it didn't work for me.) I have never replaced it yet either, because honestly, it doesn't matter. ha. It is SUPER easy to take off. Un-hook from the intake and have someone rev the car up, if the box does nothing, it broken. I think it is supposed to open around 5k or something.

Hı fırst check my thread how to check ıf the ımrc ıs workıng , ı have receıved gr8 responses n ı dıd check mıne does work altho ıt throws the code p 1518 so what ı have learnt from the responses ıs that probably ıts the box that could have a bad soldered joınt ,therefore ıt throws the error code but the ımrc ıs fully functıonal,gettıng to the box ıs a reall paın ,you got to have a good 10 socket n ratchet and very skınny hands

I disconnected mine, it made a tick tick sound. Does that sound broke or should I check connections?

means you have the typical problem... poor signal form the selenoid. Its prob all rusted/dirty preventing it from making good contact to send the right signal
