Help 2.0 TS GTV Idle Problems

Hello all,

My first post ever....

I have a GTV, Manufacture year 2000. I have owned it for about 7 years and that strange but common erratic idle thing has pretty much happened since day 1.

I have recently discovered however, that the idle hunting only happens when you turn the climate control on!!! the second I switch the a/c button off, the idle returns perfectly to normal...

I have read countless forums on the GTV idleing issues, and Ive whittled it down to about a page and a half of things that it could possible be!? MAF / Lamda / Thermostats / etc etc etc. Note - even with the air con fan only it idles fine, only when the climate control is functioning is when the problems happen..

Before I go and spend heaps of time and money on it (and based on it only ever happening when the air con is turned on) can anyone give me a concise answer to the problem?

Look forward to seeing what you guys can come up with!?

Thanks in advance.

i'd start by getting it plugged in, then get a new battery if its something electrical starting it.
