Its really hidden good. When you are on your back looking up, it will be on the radio side of the steering column. Its usually taped to another bundle of wires with black tape of some sort. Just run your fingers along every bundle until you find it. Ignore the green T connectors, you're looking for the black ones. There will be two that snap in to eachother. Do that, then follow these instructions written by Legacy777.

And removing the plastic thing under the steering column isn't necessary, but it may make things easier. I haven't ever had any problems getting to the connectors.

not necessarily. If the ECU is getting a signal from another bad sensor which is causing the ECU to poorly adjust the IAC valve.....that would exhibit the same results when unplugging the IAC valve...but the valve isn't the problem.

Try to find the connectors and go from there. I had a weird hi idle issue and of course dealer was of no help....traced it down to a little screw on the top of the throttle body which was letting too much air past the TB and was making the IAC useless since it was outside of its operating range to pull the idle back down.

well after doing a scan over of the engine, i basically crawled in the engine compartment, i noticed a bit of gasket sticking outof the intake manifold no 4 cylinder, closer inspection reveals a cracked intake...one of the ears broke off from what it looks like....:(
