I have recently experienced some odd rpms when idle, stopped at a light, or when going in reverse and after starting the car.
When stopped at a light sometimes the rpms either go up to 16000-20000, or the car feels like it is going to stall. When going in reverse the car feels like it is going to stall, when idle and then accelerating, the car feels very sluggish.

Do you have a check engine light?

Check the fuel pressure, idle air control, EGR valve, and throttle position sensor

NO OTHER LIGHT IS ON. You cannot get a cel when the computer is not working. Throttle body was cleaned and nothing changed.

If the computer is no good, I don't think it'll be running

Then why would there be no response from a scan? The scanner was tested next on another car and it worked?

Check if the PCM is being powered up-Do you have a scantool or a code reader

If the ecu was down, would the srs light, or check engine light go on?
