Hi Matt, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check the TPS sensor and harness for problems. If okay then the likely cause is an ECM problem. Try a test ECM or have yours bench tested. Let me know

Tps readings are good. I already tried a different ecm. Still does it. When at an idle it will sound like pto is trying to engage and then it goes straight to 1500 rpm. Pto is air operated not electric. And like I said when it does this if you hit the clutch to trip the switch it goes back to idle for a minute and then goes right back to 1500.

If this is PTO related your will need to check the switches and harness for the remote throttle and monitor and check the switch status and parameters with Cat ET connected. Could be a remote switch or harness problem or a software issue but since it does it with two ECMS it will likely be a remote switch or harness problem.
