If I come to a stop, the idle will be fairly low, in the 800 rpm range and will waiver. This is the strange part. If I turn off the A/C when I am stopped, the RPM's will drop significantly, and lead to the car stalling a majority of the time. If the engine is about to stall, and I turn the A/C back on, the RPM's will recover, but will still idle poorly.
I disconnected the car amplifier, and tried to recreate these events. I noticed that the RPMs will drop minorly, say 100-200 rpm when I turn off the A/C at a stop, but the drop will never make the car stall.
Is this a mechanical/sensor issue (IE TPS), or is this an electrical issue?
I read a similar post that suggested that my stereo was overpowering my charging circuit, and that I should get a more powerful battery and alternator.
I had my charging circuit checked at autozone, and they verified that my battery and alternator are functioning properly.
Thank you for your time.
have the same problem?
