None taken, actually you got me thinking so I redid the test. Same results and you can tell it is getting something cause the idle changes between the connect and no connection, I also tested continuity and it is good. But my readings are all off, even checked with the old analog multimeter I have. The Part number for my Potentiometer is 3437224035 read it directly of the potentiometer I assume this is the bosch part number. Steve can you let us know when yours comes in if it is the replacement for this part. If it is could you order me one I would be happy to pay you a facilitation fee.

Thanks for the advice. I was testing all correctly. The idle potentiometer seems the guilty party.
thanks again for getting me to look here.
