    What is wrong? Is it corrosion? Is it all still original?

    Yep, I figured it out at work, I disconnected the battery and cleaned all of my connections. Its back to normal now, saved $200 for a new idle control valve.

    Light corrosion, but when I went to pull the terminal off it started to shear. So I stopped. I was at the auto part store and didn’t want to get stuck. Still stock, so I figured I’d replace it.

    I hated the stock battery connector. If you have access to a lug crimper, I'd cut off the stock connector, preserving as much cable length as you can and crimp on a new lug. Then use one of those military style battery clamps. They are so versatile.

    See if you can find a single like this if you don't want to do them both right now:

    I figured I’ll do both, don’t have a lug crimper tho. Maybe I’ll order that too.

    The computer had to relearn your throttle position. I would still clean your throttle body, it’s probably stuck open. Surprised it’s not throwing a code.

    Ordered up some military terminals and lug crimpers. Also ordered a quick disconnect for the winch, and the necessary things to do the diff breather relocation mod. Going to tackle this stuff this weekend as well as lubing the bushings on my expo leafs I installed last week. They are so annoying and loud lol (wish AllPro would have done this when they installed the bushings.)
