Car idles high when parked

open the boot from the air filter and MAP SENSOR a black box with small electric connector on, spay small jet of carburator cleaner on sensor( small resistor/ termistor / platinum filament) to clean the dust or deposit dirt. plug back and test. if not fix = open the boot intake hose to engine and where is accelaration cable or electronic controler and inspect the metal disk (air intake ajustment) for deposits and if close ok, if are black deposits = spray carburator cleaner and use the finger to remuve the edge of gums created = more opening = more RPM on idle.
