i have a VS commodore V6 and i have had to replace the IAC becasue the throttle was sticking at 2000rpm so i brought a new one and replaced it without knowing that i had to program it and now its playing up.

What i need to know is whats the process of reprorgramining it so it works again becasue i have lost all power and its slow as anything taking off now so i need it fixed.

thanks guys

Andrew

i was told that it was a matter of for eg. putting it into drive and then rev it to about 3000rpm and hold it there and then take foot off and then put it into nutraul and do the same and do it with all the gears and have the air con and and all this type of ****.

3000 in drive? be hard to hold the car steady doing that and it'd be tricky trying to hold it at 3000 on open road...

I think you reset it by disconnecting the battery to reset the computer and when you start the engine hold it at 2000rpm for 10-20 seconds.

yep, to reset the IAC valve, disconnect the battery for 15 sec then start the engine and rev to 3000rpm for 15 sec and then let it return to idle. do this with the engine up to running temp and all accesories switched off.
