Check your battery cables for a good connection. Those codes are because your loosing battery power to the pcm and bcm computers. Not the isc

Look at the thottle youll see the idle control sesor there. Its the 1 that has a screw you losen so u can set it whyll installing. When installing a new sensor, youll need to adjust the sensor to 5volts then tighten the set screw.

That code is a abs fault. Nothing to do with the isc sensor. Clear the codes by using the low fan switch for no and hi for yes. It gos through the codes and stops on pcm push on low fan button untill u see clear pcm codes. Then hit the hi button. Then it will say pcm codes cleared. Do it for bcm and all other computers with codes. You need to clear all the cpus. Then recheck the codes.
