No You never have to take a vehicle to a dealer. Not even a brand new one
You can replace the idle control motor yourself,if you know for a fact it needs to be replaced. You may have to go the dealers parts counter for the part.
Any repair shop can work on any make vehicle also. There is nothing that requires you to ever set foot into a dealership for repairs. It is your vehicle to do as you see fit

How can I disable the abs brakes on a 2006 Nissan maxima

I do not have any first hand experience with the Nissan Maxima but have pulled a 60 amp fuse in the box under the hood on Chevy trucks. Here is what I found on the web which may be helpful to you. First the link and then the text:

The problem is corrosion in the rear hubs is causing the sensors to be pushed out of alignment with the sensor ring. DO NOT continue to drive the car with this problem. It will burn out the abs controller. That part costs $1300.00. First thing you should do is open the hood of the vehicle and follow the wire for the right front abs sensor. You will see a plug above where the motor mount connects to the passenger inner fender area. Unplug that connector. It will disable the abs system so the pump will stop running.

If you are mechanically inclined you could repair this. The rear hubs need to be removed and cleaned. Also the plastic cap behind the hub needs to be modified. After removing the hub you will be able to remove the plastic cap behind it. You will see a hole in the cap where the sensor goes through it. Cut the top portion of the cap so the hole looks like a U and reinstall it. Clean the corrosion around the bearing mating surfaces and reinstall the rest of the parts. Do this for both rear wheels. Be sure to reconnect the front sensor after the repairs are made. You will need to have the codes cleared after repairing. __________________

How do you adjust the idle on a '04 Nissan Pathfinder 3.5L V6

The idle is not adjustable, it is computer controlled and no adjustment is provided for. If the idle is to high or to low you have a problem and need the dealer to diagnose and repair it.

94 nissan altima won't start and iddle after cleaning IACV valve

An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body. The cars computer or PCM (powertrain control module) receives information from various sensors and will output signals to adjust the idle air control motor in or out to adjust engine idle speed by controlling engine idle air. An idle air control motor can fail one of two ways, either the motor short circuits and stops working or the motor will develop high resistance and cause the idle air control motor to react slowly, either failure can cause the engine to stall at idle. When a trouble code scan is performed it sometimes won't always detect a failed or weak idle air control motor.

Oil engine light blinks on and off when the engine is idling. What can cause this?

This is an indication of low oil pressure. Either the oil level is too low and you need to add oil to the full line on the dip stick or you have a real oil pressure problem and need to have the problem diagnosed by a certified mechnic.
Let me know if you have any other comments or questions. Thanks.

When ideling, the engine races up and down without touching the accelerator. when driving, the engine stalls while at a stand still and in gear.

Replace your IAC motor. This is the "idle air control"motor. This control the amount of air needed to keep the vehicles idle stable.

I have a 2000 nissan maxima and the problem that i

Idle air control valves short out all the time on these models. You can ohm the motor to check it, but the down side to a shorted iac valve is that it shorts out the ecm if not repaired quickly. when the valve shorts, 12 volts is supplied directly to the ecm and burns the circuit board. The other option is the air flow meter, this is also a very common problem but typically a p0171/p0174 would be stored in self diag.
