IACV reading 17 ohms, brand new?

I just got a new iacv today, **** was $220. Not oem, from another maker, standard I believe.

Well I slap it in, run down the road, and it starts bouncing again. I took an ohm reading and its sitting at 16-17 ohms, slightly warm. =/

Can someone confirm for me this is not good, before I call up the seller and demand my money back. The 93 accord iacv sits at 12 ohms.

This is the 3rd IACV I've gone threw. I'm second guessing myself.

But its still only when at temp. =/ And there is no CEL. Could it be the ECU itself?

Trust me I've been messing with that issue to. I cleaned up my throttle body, unbolting it, and you should see the junk that came out of it. Try that first and also possible could be a bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) If you know someone who has a throttle body that you could borrow I would try that. ECU wise, def. not.

Well I ordered a chipped ecu. I know its electrical. Only a temp, and it'll vary between different iacvs. I had a bad trans ecu in my accord that caused it to stick in 3rd gear. The fact that it was constant with the new iacv at 17 ohms and now back to only sometimes with the old iacv at 13 ohms, it tells me its electical. 3 iacvs later and its time to try the ecu. Also, my car has never idled right. It will always drop, raise, then settle. Like its having a hard time finding it. Im sending the new iacv back and my p28 pheralbe ecu will be here in a few days.

I've checked the tps, ohms and volts are fine.
