Ses p1634

My car threw a P1634 (Throttle adaptation valve spring test fail).

Anyone have any insight on what could be causing this? Planning to take the car in to a shop, but don't have time until next weekend =[

Well, you can try this, reset the throttle by putting the key to position 2(where all the lights come up) and hold it there for 10 secs, then put it in position 1(where jest the millage appears) for 10 sec's then start the car, but make sure you clear the code first.

Thanks. Tried it, no dice. I cleared the codes and reset the adaptation. Only code it throws with the crazy rough idle is P1634.
