Hi,
My car was working fine 3 weeks back. I went on vacation and I left it unused for 3 weeks.
When I came and ran the car I got the Engine Check light. I got it diagonised, I showed error code P0505 Idle Control System Malfunction.
Can you please guide me what could be the problem? And how much would it cost to get it done?

Thanks,
Vishy

The IAC can get stuck due to inactivity for extended periods. You can try cleaning the IAC which won't cost much, just a can or carb cleaner and some work. As to cost, it varies according to location so I am not able to advise on this.
