Ignition takes longer and idle goes higher after ignition
January 25, 2017
Sometimes, not always, when I hit StartEngine button, it would take about 2~3 sec. to start (normally it is instant-start).
After the ignition though, it happened only once, the idle went up to 1500 rpm, which it normally is around 700~800 rpm. I was stoned for about 4 sec. and I then shifted from P to D, and the idle went back to normal right after I shifted the gear. I live in San Diego, and it is not like freezing cold even in Winter. At night the lowest temperature is around 44.6 F.
