the idle and wot switch yes are on top of the TB. their function is pretty simple to figure out. the plug in behind the TB, if you choose to unplug,please note that it can be dangerous to drive on boost with this plug removed in some cases. (AKA don't get on boost if you choose to unplug these switches).
you changed the blue cts already??? thats a $14 part. every 60K is a good time to change it. You can plug the BLUE HARNESS into the BLACK CTS to test this theory.
Mine has this problem too, yesterday I cranked it atleast 50 times before it started, sometimes it takes 1 crank, sometimes a couple, but I also have idle problems where the engine rpm boggs down, sometimes shutting off then rising to 1500rpm. I want to burn my car.
no really thats quite normal
the failure of the key cylinder 99% stops the starter solenoid
other 1% stops the ecu
there was a guy here when you were not moving, his car would rev to 5500rpm then the keys would vibrate at a harmonic that would cause the ecu to lose power due to key cylinder. that was very difficult to debug!
