High idle pillar mount wiring

Pictures won't do you much good as they all have a ton of heat shrink wrap on back of the switch.

What's the code it throws?

More than likely one of the resistors has broken due to stress on the harness/switch pins.

The ground wire in the wiring before the switch is busted somewhere in the cable.  It is the bare wire. 

 

 

Having looked at a number of these I can tell you that if you want to fix it you will need to run a new ground wire to the sensor.

One of the posts on the switch is supposed to be empty.  

 

 

The issue is in your ground wire in the cable at some point.  A single solder break on the switch itself will not cause those 2 codes.  the only you have both of those codes is a break in the ground wire from the ecm.

The old high idle switch did have a couple issues like this in the ground wire.  

 

In the New High Idle Switch we are building now we have stepped up the gauge of the wire to prevent this issue. 

 

We have also designed a PCB board to connect the switch to.  This means that you will no longer see wires breaking off the switch.  The Harness is also different since it uses a 8 pin molex to connect to the board.

Yep,

Another note the old high idle switch wasn't produced by the site rather a member. The new ones are designed and built by the site.

The idea for the switch and the theory for how it works is thanks to moparman himself.
