Default Idle drops into the 400's when AC compressor kicks on

Perhaps unrelated, but ever since I've had my BB tuned PCM in, i've noticed a considerable dip in my idle speed at a light, stop signs, anytime i'm idling in gear, with the brake applied.

Looking at my efilive log files i see a steady 540-560RPM idle, but when the AC compressor kicks on, it will drop to the low to mid 400's causing a brief but noticeable stumble. bbbbbbbbbbbbbb..buuuhblaaaaah...bbbbbbbbbbbbbb

For why?

Sounds like either your idle RPM table or idle airflow table needs some work.

Easy fix.

unhook your battery, then hook it back up after a while. then start the truck and let it learn for a few minutes(it will be rough then start to idle better). then kick the a/c on and it will bog but dont give it gas, just let it learn. it worked for me. the last time i unhooked my battery, i just hooked it up and took off, forgot to let it learn and it started dying on me at lights.

Sounds like you got a cam in there, bro...wanna race?

I've read about solutions similar to Nick's. I'd give that a shot. Otherwise you can leave the severed head of a horse in Justin's bed.

Pull out that johnson rod and give it a good clean with some brake cleaner, re insert and lube up.
