Hello, my name is***** your check engine light on or does it ever come on? Thanks.
So the problem is vehicle runs rough when first starting and idle intermittently goes too high? Did both start after installing battery backwards?
I think you may have burned out your PCM which is the main engine computer. I'd start by disconnecting battery and touching cables together for 10 minutes with battery disconnected to reset memory. If that doesn't help then I'd go ahead and replace the PCM. Disconnecting battery backwards would not have ruined anything else. Here is a link to send your PCM out for repair which may be your cheapest option. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
Here are replacement instructions, let me know how it goes. Thanks
leave them disconnected from battery but touching eachother for 10 minutes. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
Did you remove the passenger side airbag bracket?
No problem, it really should come out without too much effort. Let me know how it goes an send me some pictures if needed. Thanks.
It definitely looks like a tight fit. Without being there or having changed one of these recently I cannot offer much of a solution. Based on pictures I'd probably try to bend down PCM bracket so it clears. I'll open question back up to see if someone else can offer a solution from memory. Thanks.
