Hi DN, a happy new year to every one here. Vehicle came in with a complaint about the HVAC system but I noticed that once I start it up, it looks like it wants to stall but will manage to pick up. After checking the HVAC system u started the vehicle and it dies immediately but when I start with my foot on the gas pedal, it manages to stay on at high rev. Once I let go of the pedal, it dies down immidiately. Pls I need help asap. Thanks.

If battery has been replaced recently or disconnected for whatever reason the idle needs to be re-learned by which most have said by cleaning throttle body.

Clean the throttle body, disconnect the battery first so the memory can reset while you do the throttle body cleaning. When you hook the battery back up and start it, it will re learn The idle.
