1500 is a little high. If this is an automatic then the idle should be about 700 in neutral and up to 700 in drive. With the ac on it should not be over 1000. You should check the idle air speed motor.

I recently purchased a 2002 mitisbushi lancer and the idle was going up and down. When i turned air conditioner on the idle went down, when i turned it off the idle went up. Now with that being said i put...

Disconnecting the battery will not delete stored fault history. It must be done with a CRT (Snap- On 3000) or equivalent. The idle condition you have now should be the opposite. 1200 RPM with air on 900 with air off. This vehicle is at an age where several components are probably out of range. I would try changing the cheapest parts first. 1 Fuel filter 2 Air filter 3 Thermostat For Coolant) 4 All coolant temp sensors (They can affect idle) 5 MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure sensor) 6 Idle air motor. Sometimes the idle air motor can be cleaned . Check pintle and seat for carbon build up, clean with a valve guide brush. Pintle not seating will cause idle problems

I have a 1996 Isuzu Hombre. Sometimes it won't start and just turn over. It also dies sometimes while driving or just idleing at stop sign. When this happens there is a clicking and buzzing sound

Sounds to me like a bad battery, however the alternator could be bad as well if it's not charging the battery enough to allow for amperage to crank. Auto Parts Forum

Why will my 2000 dodge 1500 truck start and idle

then the normal suspects are...
IAT (intake air temp) sensor
IAC (idle air control) motor
dirty/corroded connections

do you see any specific weather conditions before/during the idle concern like cold and/or rain?

Poor Idle on a dodge 2000 ram 318CID

I'd be more leaning toward IAT sensor in your intake manifold.(2 wires usually) It basically senses incoming air temperature & sends info to computer to adjust injector flow according to incoming air temperature conditions.

Low engine idle speed when the air conditioning is running

the ac idle assist may be defective, if it's electric check the fuses if it's vachum operated check for vac. leaks. Also lube cables sometimes they stick Use wd-40 on the cables sparingly don't want dirt to stick to the cable.
