Default Why doesn't my high idle work?

It worked fine for a while and now it will not idle up. I think this happened when I added tunes but it's been so long I can't remember. Could the SCT custome tunes cause my high idle not to work?

Don't know it it's related but when I put my Extreme Street from Innovative on mine a few weeks ago mine stop idling up. It would be nice for it to work cause it's still getting in the 30's up here in North Dakota at night and the truck warms up a lot faster with it.

That's what we're talking about.

I dont think its related at all. Make sure all of your relays and fuses are secure in the junction box. Its behind the glove box. When the high idle doent work, does the light come on for your switch? If it does, your are getting power to your aux switch.

I haven't done any mods to mine for high idle. I just know when I crank it up and it's cold out it will idle itself up to around 900rpm until its get to operating temp then goes back down to 650. If I have run the truck, shut it off and crank up when the coolant temp is around 100 degrees it will only idle up to 750 then idle back down after getting to operating temp. When i tuned it with the SCT it stopped doing that. It stays around 650 all the time.

So for experimentation I detuned back to stock to see if it would idle up and it did. Coolant temp was 94 degrees, she held at 650 for just a minute and then idles up to 750. Cut the truck off, put my custom tune back on again at it stays at 650 all the time. I know the tune is set for 625 rpm idle so I think my tune is keeping it idled down.

So none of yall have done the high idle "mod" and your relying on the truck work like the factory designed?

Yes air. At least I am. Where do I get the high idle mod from? I don't have any relays behind my glovebox.
