P1508 ACURA Meaning

The target idle speed is in the Engine Control Module (ECM) memory for various engine conditions (coolant temperature, A/C operation and so on). The ECM keeps the actual idle speed at the target idle speed by switching the Idle Air Control Valve IACV) ON/OFF to control the intake airflow.
