radio tip

Thanks for the tip. I was headed down the path of removing the console. That would or could have been a very bad novice mistake. Thanks for clueing me in.

High idle problem

I have not got the idle problem figured out. Unfortunately being called in to work extra has got in the way of playing with my new project. I did order the CD manual for the car and one of my local parts houses had a replacement air idle control valve for a reasonable price.....so when i have the time i will replace the valve and test the car. This work thing takes away from the playing with toy thing. I am sure I will be asking for more info in the future. Take care
