Customer Question
Hi George, your hypothesis is...
Hi George, your hypothesis is the same I had found at the beginning, but my Subaru "specialist" told me there was no throttle motor on my car, wich is false according to you and the technical diagrams I have. I have a few additionnal questions : what is the role and function of the neutral switch in closing the throttle ? Can I bypass this switch ? Or just unplug it ? And, most of all, how many questions may I ask with my order nb 16089682-590 ? Thanks in advance.
