Icon9 Car running funky...

Hey so just recently my car got broken into.. they took a bunch of stuff including a vafc controller.. ive ran my car without it since, and now my idle is running inconsistently (ranging from 0-200 idle, and after i gas it- which is also not very unresponsive - will drop to almost 0) they only disconnected the vafc from my ecu. they also cut a couple of wires in my engine (one wire cut from my power steering reservoir and a hood sensor). i was just wondering what you guys thought could be makin my lude run so weird..

i was thinkin it was the disconnection of my vafc?

thanks for the help in advance.

Re: Car running funky...

definately the vafc2 not being hooked up. when you install the vafc2 harness, you splice into the map sensor wire at the ecu. i believe it is a red/green wire but im not 100%. right now there is no bridge between the 2 spliced wires with the vafc2 missing. all you have to do is reconnect that wire back to how it was from the factory and the car will run normal, guaranteed.
