idle too low for power steering!

after installing my new climate control unit yesterday. (and disconnecting the battery) the car seems to idle alot of lower then previous. could i have reset the ECU? now when i'm in "D" (drive) at the traffic lights and turning the wheel. the revs will go down to about 400 and vibrate the whole car and it doersn't sound healthy at all. I checked out the power steering fluid and it smells a bit burnt. so I'll change that today! anything i can do to fix the problem. or will it need a tune-up?

Re: idle too low for power steering!

Mate, disconnect the idle control solinoid, turn up the idle a little, then connect it back up again.
Turn off the engine, then restart it.
keep doing this until your happy with the idle speed.
