this time the alternator was bad again and the voltage kept spiking between 11 to 17 volts... but the problem is still occurring... after reading a few articles about this issue, i read that the throttle body valve sticking/seizing might be cause of it and also the TB is tied into the abs and dsc systems... i did notice that my idle is lower than normal.. i'm hoping cleaning the TB or maybe replacing it will fix this issue... also will be checking for a ripped boot...
Any update in your problem ? did you resolved ?
