Because after like 2 mins or 5 mins it's supposed to go into hi idle to keep ac/heat working optimally and to prevent wet stacking.

That's when mine does it....usually only in the winter. Had a low of about 50* last night. Didn't do it this morning.

So under 50* at LEAST then... I heard they are supposed to it all the time.

how come my idle doesn't come up when it's cold to warm it up quicker?
