Engine Computer has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it has to be in control of idle speed. Mitsubishi and Chrysler do a lot of things the same way. To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place on Chryslers, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the pedals.
