My random thought of the day is angry...
I have a car that took a huge dump on me last week. Pulled out my code reader p0505. Very-very long story made short, my IACV shorted and took my Computer (ECM) out with it, as it fried a chip on the board!!! Got new IACV and sent my ECM out for repair from a reputable company. Got them back few days ago, installed them, did all the idle re-learn procedures and not 10 miles down the road smelled that sweet smell of another computer chip melting away and p0505 again. Tested the parts, another shorted IACV and fried ECM. Back where I started with a few hundred bucks wasted. Spent the last 2 days testing continuity/shorts of the whole electrical system and all is good with that. Very confused, only thing I think off is my replacement IACV was bad out the box. What a nightmare, could have bought a nice pistol after all this crap is hopefully said and done :-(

What ride you working with ? We have mitchell on demand here and could look up a diagram and test values . Hell might even have a junker here I could rob some parts of off to shoot you .
Do you fully understand how to work a good electrical meter ? If not then your pissing in the wind . IAC mainly get dirty and can be cleaned , they are basically a motor driven valve . Any codes for your TPS ?

Sounds like it needs to be pushed off a cliff along with this damn suburban I'm working on...

Thank you MobileMarine for your generous offer, people like you are what makes this forum great!!! It's a 01 nissan maxima. I have the factory service manual for the car and a mid-to-upper range multi meter which I'm pretty handy with. All testing and values were run per the factory manual. No codes for TPS. The IACV/ECM issue is a well known Maxima problem with the 00-01's, hell its even common that the electric motor mounts take out the ECU if they fail!!! No circuit protection in any of these items, just bad engineering. I'm kicking myself I didn't test my replacement IACV before installing it, to rule that possibility out. Also that I sold my truck a few months ago.... :-(

I'll happily meet you at the closest cliff for some revenge at this point.

Well I got a 45 acp shell holder for my press today....still no dies, powder or bullets. I may have to cave and buy it online and pay the Hazmat tax. No way to clean my brass either.....ugh this is getting expensive.
