Car does not idle

Hi guys. Got a 220 turbo. Started it for the first time in about 3 months. When I let off the gas the car just dies, it does not want to idle. Held the throttle for a few minutes but no difference. Then a couple of times it did hold idle, just then it randomly cut out after a few minutes. I didn't really have this problem prior to leaving it in the lock up. The stepper was reset twice by pumping the pedal 5 times etc and you can hear the stepper whirr away but no difference. Any idea what the problem could be here? Thanks, Rav.

I'd try unplugging the stepper motor and cleaning up the plug before putting it back on.

Also is it running on all 4 cylinders? could be a duff lead giving a misfire which the ECU will always struggle with.
Ok thanks. Is it worth maybe also replacing the stepper motor? It sounded like it was firing on all 4 cylinders tbh.
if you have no luck with cleaning your stepper motor. I have one from a 1.8 vvc mgf.
I think they are the same!
if so PM me
