Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX
This is an Idle Air Controll Circuit Fault code.
Take the IAC out of the car, plug it back in, turn the key on DO NOT START THE CAR WITH IT REMOVED.
You should see the IAC Pintle move a bit when you turn the key on.
Also, the needle, and seat inside the throttle body should be clean and not covered in soot. You should also clean the throttle body of any soot coking to maintain the desired Idle speed and functionality.
