P1507 Idle Control System Malfunction (Fail Safe) HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

So, long story short here we are with Courtneys SECOND motor swap. Everything went more or less flawless. Started it up and with-in 30 seconds it threw P1507 Idle Control System Malfunction (Fail Safe) I don't even know what that means. Everything worked fine before (Except the ticking.) Right before she brought me the car she sprayed the engine bay out and it threw a knock sensor code.. but that went away once the car was dry. So then I swapped the motor.. and now here I am. I am going to call CCR tomarrow and see what they think. (If I don't get any good ideas here first.) I'm going to cry. I'm starting to feel like a failure or something.. even though the first motor wasnt my fault. :clap:
