Default Touched throttle body butterfly to clean, Max won't idle

I was messing with my Nismo intake and decided to with the throttle body. I moved the butterfly up and down a few times and now the car won't hold an idle and dies after starting up. Am I screwed and have to buy a new one or take it to Nissan to fix?

Try making a relearning procedure on the throttle, once I was cleaning the throttle and did move a little the butterfly to clean it, when I started the car did not idle correctly, did that and everything went back to normal
Idle Air Relearn Procedure (Manual)

Hope this helps.

I'll give it a try tonigh since my car is stuck a work. I can't get the car to hold at idle, it just does after a second so I won't be able to get the car to temperature. I'll post back here after results.

Disconnected the battery over night and also did the idle relearn procedure this morning. Same results as yesterday. Gonna get a used throttle bottle today and how that fixes the problem

Gotta unplug battery terminal before playing with Nissan/Infinity TBs , if not you ll regret it . These should NOT be touched by hand , some times you gotta have to go at dealership & they ll give you a nice bill afterward .

You have to do the idle air relearn once the TB is touched/cleaned.. My idle was high and rough.. Once I did the idle air relearn and it took everything drop back down to normal..

Guys, what's the consensus on this? I usually DIY my throttle plates and MAF sensors. I'll disconnect the battery before I start, but am I taking a serious risk doing this myself? I had the impression that the worst that could happen is that I'd have To do some of the relearn procedures.

Start the video around 2:20

It makes sense to me that if someone holds down the accelerator (or you put a brick on it), it stands to reason that you'd be fine.

Thoughts?

Default Re: Touched throttle body butterfly to clean, Max won't idle

i got the high idle code after i took off the throttle body and cleaned it. opened and closed it manually, but off the car. I did the idle reset and it works but when i shutoff the car and turn it on again, it resets to high idle, like it doesn't save the relearn. I tried to reset the ECU overnight by taking off the terminals off the battery, but i think because i have 2 capacitors for my audio system, which i assume is giving enough juice for the ECU memory because it does not reset. I have a buddy at Nissan dealer who is going to use the scanner to reset the ECU.
That's just my situation, a lot of people have successfully relearned their cars without issues, not sure why it won't for me.

Sorry to hear about your situation.

Never had this problem on a car I've owned before.....what's wrong with a low tech throttle cable!

Did anyone ever try this method? (skip to the 2:15 mark)
