So I have 000 141 93 25 Electronic throttle actuator.
Original unit had bad wiring. Put in a 2004 build unit thinking it was ok. Car still has high idle, around 1100 rpms. I foolishly thought that simply putting a newer build one would be the solution.
I think it was a high mileage unit because it appears to not move the throttle plate at all at idle. The plate stays in the same position with the ETA plug disconnected and when it is connected. In other words the 2004 ETA i have does absolutely NOTHING to alter idle. Had 4 different TLLR modules in there and its the same problem. With the car on high idle I remove the AMF and I presss gently on the throttle plate to close the air gap, idle drops to a nice normal level. Obviously the ETA is supposed to be doing this job.
Had enough of bloody "rebuilt' and newer date of manufacture units that have absolutely no guarantee that they will be functional. Ive looked at programma, beckmann and others on ebay. Ive also read bad experiences with all of them.
It is a long shot but I am looking for anyone who has a NEW unit with part number
000 141 93 25. I know its not cheap and Im not expecting it to be like the rebuilt units.
Otherwise I will be considering getting it for the lowest possible price from a dealer online.
I have been steadily getting this car up to a high mechanical standard as I want it to be my daily driver. Due to limited time I have been very delayed with the plans. However, this high idle is the only remaining issue.
Also did a smoke test on the weekend with a proper machine to eliminate leaks possibilities. Replaced so many parts and sensors that were not even faulty, deliberately to get to a high reliability level.
