High idle

So I am fairly new to the PSD world and this Forum. I have a problem with my 2000 f250. (sort of) I am going to college and currently live in an apartment. My truck is straight piped and when it hits high idle EVERYBODY complains it is to loud, but at the regular idle it does not seam to bother anybody. My question is how can I simply turn off my high idle without running outside every two minutes to tap my brake, or having to take a rod and jam it between my seat and brake. A switch would be nice to turn in on and off on demand, but I have also considered just disabling it. I do not want to buy a chip or programmer with a high idle position on it and so far that is the only answer I have found by searching forums besides most people have a hard time getting there truck to idle up and here I am trying to get my truck to not high idle. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Tell them to get over it. Idling your truck at low idle in the cold puts a lot of stress on the engine, it high idles to prevent something called "wet stacking"

I am not real worried about wet stacking I live in TN so we do not have real cold winters and if it does get real cold 0-5 degrees for the low it may be for only a day or two and i plug my truck in and i only let it idle for maybe 10-15 minutes and that is hardly enough time for it to wet stack in the harshest conditions. any other suggestions would be great.

Unplug the ebpv sensor on the turbo behind the fuel filter. And I unplugged my park brake warning sensor because the bumper on the pedal was worn out so the dinging wouldn't stop but she stopped the high idle. Personally I see no reason to not want the high idle it isn't hurting anything, if the ebpv is bugging you just unplug that sensor and be done with it until you can get the turbo pedistal without the ebpv.
