How to disable raising RPM with electrical load

Postby f22angel » August 14th, 2016 06:46 PM

Does anybody know to do I quit my RPM raising when I turn the headlights on specifically, I already disconnected the ELD, it helped a little but I'd like to keep the same Idle when nothing's is turned on as when the lights are on, that is about 700.

I don't know of any way to do this. It's programmed into the ECU.

If you have a 1991-95, you could have the ECU chipped and a custom tune installed to keep the rpm constant. You could probably get this done for about $200, although you would have to send your ECU to someone online and there are a lot of scam artists out there.

Yep Is an OBD1 1994, I'll try that! Thanks for your reply, I already got another problem, the car won't start it throws a code 15, I might need to replace the ECM :(

Code 15 is ignition output signal. It is quite common for the ignitor in the distributor to fail. You should start by replacing the ignitor. Easy but expensive way is to replace the distributor. Or, you can pull the distributor and do a small amount of disassembly and replace just the ignitor.

You can get the list of OBD1 codes here:

Yeah I already replaced the whole distributor last week and it did the same thing, then I put back my distributor since there was no change, I didn't know what to do, I even thought it was The ECM, but this Sunday I took it apart then put it back in and the car started up again! Weird right? Then yesterday the same didn't want to start, then I took apart the ECM again and now it hasn't failed again, I'd like some kind of explanation to that lol
