    Wow, completely different issues here.

    ELD, electronic load detector. It's the heart of your electrical system. I have not had a problem with mine, or replaced it. Isn't your UK model different in that respect? I think you'll need to figure this one out by comparing your specs to US specs.

    The tranny issue I touched on in the other thread.

    The idle bounce may be connected to your ELD, so fix that first, then work on the idle bounce. All of your fuel problems might be tied to this electrical problem.

    Lastly, and your least concern is your IAB. You should connect it in my opinion, but it is not necessary. I've found that I get slightly better lowend power, and a little better mileage with it in use. It's not the big fuel saver that you are hoping for, so save this for the end. It will not throw a code or cause any of your other problems.
