bad EBPV???

so i wired my EBPV to a switch so i could use it as a break, well when i turn my switch on nothing happens, does the motor have to be running since i unhooked the pcm? how do i know if my valve is closing? has anybody else done this?????

no, it idleing up is to help it warm up. or if it idles a long time when warm it does it to keep the carbon/hot spots in the valve train where it should be.....at least thats what I understood.
