Hi all , I installed a Dorman intake manifold because my original one started leaking. any way i installed the new one and everything fine no leaks but now my idle around 2100 rmp and i cant figure it out. I got code P0113 - Open circuit in harness , Circuit High Input : Self-Test maximum. : circuit and PCM. which say i have a possible short short in the electrical wire harness. and that its putting out more voltage than maximum allowed which is 4.6v. so I checked it and its putting out 12v. Can a short cause it to shoot the wrong voltage? Anyway I went and bought a new Iac valve hoping that was the problem but it wasn't. Any suggestions?

Considering that the IAT sensor is on the +5 volt supply, the max voltage should be 5 volts. So 12 volts indicates a short to battery positive. If this were my car, I would be looking to see where the wiring harness could have been damaged during the repair.

IMO based upon the DTC code and the recent repair, replacing the IAC is a waste of $$.

>>
P0113 - Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Circuit High Input

Indicates the sensor signal is greater than Self-Test maximum. The IAT sensor maximum is 4.6 volts or -50°C (-58°F).

Open circuit in harness
Sensor signal short to power
Damaged sensor
Improper harness connection
Damaged PCM

IAT V PID reading greater than 4.6 volts with key ON and engine OFF or during any engine operating mode indicates a hard fault.

Like he said look wherever you was messing with any wires or working around any. Start from the IAT Sensor which is INTAKE AIR TEMP SENSOR. Not IAC Idle Air Control Valve. Look at those wires and make sure it is plugged in and the wires are in good shape. If you don't know the IAT sensor is located right after the MAF plugged into your CAI.
