Code 505 nissan pathfinder

Code P0505 is Idle control system malfunction. You can tweak the idle level of these, but I hope you're patient. After working on mine (I did not replace, he just cleaned and adjusted), for about an hour and many adjustments, my mechanic was able to get mine just right. Started running perfect and service engine light went off as well.
