    Well, nothing went wrong. On some newer vehicles, the cleaning of the throttle makes such a drastic change that the computer needs to relearn the minimum idle position of the throttle. Usually a few times on and off the highway, then letting it idle for 2 minutes, shutting key off for one minute will do the trick. Or disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. In extreme cases, the computer will need a reprogram. This must be doine at the dealer.
