Re: Auxillary Idle Controller

Your Ford AIC is actually a small computer. The name of the black box is auxiliary powertrain control module (Aux. PCM). So like most small computers, when it goes south you throw it away and buy a new one.

Re: Auxillary Idle Controller

does it light up?
check the connections look for fuses pulled wires etc...
it sits where it can get kicked so that would be my guess.

Re: Auxillary Idle Controller

Does the P-brake light on the dash come on? Just thinking that maybe the switch that says p-brake is on is not sending the signal to the AIC.

Re: Auxillary Idle Controller

You might check to make sure your alternator is functioning correctly. Are you having any other problems with the truck?

Re: Auxillary Idle Controller

1Chavez, I will check that, i never noticed the light coming on before.

Kanman, I have the alternators guaged, everything checks ok. I have minor stuff wrong, like the pass door auto lock dosent work , i need a new turn signal, with the winshield wiper on it. It comes on when it wants. Thats about it.

I checked through the manual i will double check and let you know. Thanks for the info guys !!!

Re: Auxillary Idle Controller

Sounds like you may have a bad parking brake switch, possibly a bad/loose connection at that switch. Check that area first.
