W124 E320 - Idling too high

Hi everyone
I need help! My 1995 E320 is idling too high at around 1,500 rpm in neutral and 1,000 rpm in drive. The cruise control doesn't work either. So far I have replaced the engine wire harness ($$$), idle/cruise control unit ($$) and yet neither a general mechanic nor specialist mercedes mechanic seem to know what is wrong. Just wondering if anyone has had anything similar and how it was resolved. I am in Melbourne, Australia if anyone has any suggested repairers.
Thanks in advance..
