Hey y’all!

Been a while, but back with an issue I’m not sure what to do about. My insight has been sitting a while, as I’ve gotten a new daily. Today, I went to go start it to keep everything fresh and make sure all was well with it, and noticed my idle was acting strange. It would hold at around 2000rpm, and then randomly drop off, acting like it was going to die, down to around 1200rpm, and then climb itself back up to 2000, in. A wave pattern. I went ahead and check the blink codes, and received blink code 14, which has to do with the idle. While I was able to read up on it, I’m not sure how to fix it.

Any suggestions on how to correct the issue? All help is appreciated!

I’ve had another daily for about a year now, I try to go start the insight every 3 months, but likely haven’t started in 6 months. Could this just be the result of old gas?

Assuming you are still running with the IMA battery connected?

Nope, IMA is disconnected until I get a replacement battery. Condition is so bad that it would actually drain the 12V battery, so it’ll all 12v right now. It never did this before when I drove it around without the IMA connected.
