Another EBPV question

I unplugged my EBPV at the turbo. I thought this would have disabled it, but now that the weather is getting colder here It seems like it's still working. When the truck is warming up, it kicks into that higher idle when the valve closes still(annoying sound). It goes back to a normal idle when I hit the brakes. Doesn't that sound like an EBPV that is working correctly?? Or is this something else?? Do I have to tie open the butterfly valve in the turbo or what?
Not great picture, but you can see where it has been removed.(the plug with the wired clip on it is obviously not shown)

thanks for any help guys!!

You will still have the high idle with the ebpv unplugged. Make sure its open and the truck is off when you unplug the wire. You can reach under the turbo and feel the actuating arm and see if you can open it. Its possible its sticking part way shut. Mine was doing the same thing, so I had to eliminate the hole valve out of the system.

Here is a pic of the turbo pedistal. On the back left side is the actuating arm as you can see in the pic. This will help you locate it on the truck

Thanks for the fast reply Vital!
I unplugged it this past summer while truck was warmed up, I would have hoped that it was open then.
I'll get in there and check on it underneath tomorrow. I just want that noise to go away, I always warm my truck up all year round, so I don't mind the extra time it will take to warm up.

no not yet.
Only because I havent tried anything.
Now that I'm thinking about it I will go see if it's stuck partway shut.
I've just been dealing with the high idle.
I thought that unplugging it would disable it altogether, but I don't feel like pulling the turbo and all to eliminate it. It's too cold and I'm too Lazy!

I was out there the other day looking at this again. First I can't get my hand back there to feel actuating arm. I know where it's at, just can't get a hnd on it with out removing anything.
My new question is this-Should I have unplugged the EBP regulator on the front of the pedestal, or should I have disconnected the EBP sensor in front of the HPOP?

I know the only sure fire way is to tie it open, but i'm curious.
Thanks guys.

later

That's the regulator, that's what I unplugged. I was wondering what unplugging the sensor would do. It's right in front of the HPOP.
