Default Idle speed control - error P1565

I got check engine light and figured out that the error code is P1565

which I indentified being "Idle Speed Control Throttle Position lower limit not attained"

Which makes sense as the when starting the car it feels like it almost fails to catch the idle and revs drop too low - also the idle revs are sort of low and a little uneven (rpm-wise, runs ok) - car runs smooth otherwise.

Any ideas where to start looking? Is there a servo or something that controls the idel?

Any tips would be great.


- oh yeah - car Audi a6 1998 v6 30v

Answering myself - probably (hopefully) throttle body is filled with scum. Will try cleaning and see if check engine light will stay off.

Any tips for throotle body removal would be highly appreciated.

The best I found for AHA so far was this:
