I figured this out today, so I thought I would post some pictures up. It is actually much much easier to do on our cars, than any other Ive worked on. No tools required.
Just make sure when you take the slack out of the cable that the throttle body is completely closed.

lol you are only supposed to take any slack out of the line if there even is any at all. sounds like you took up the slack and then some.

I did this because the cruise control install added just a tiny bit of slack to my throttle cable. Its gone now. This is not a means to adjust your base idle.

Idle adjustment is normally done with some kind of screw on the IACV on the intake plenum. I havent looked into adjusting the throttle on these cars. I dont even know if you ever have to.

you can, there is a screw but its has some hard core loc tite on there so the thing doesnt move. its a torx and a small one which makes it that much worse. but yeah, with my spark plugs the car does 20X better when it idles at 1100 rpm

I drive a 2005 Santa Fe GLS. It looks like a have the same issue.
Based on the pictures provided, I tried to fix the problem, but I can't find the cable under the hood.

Thx

Good info! Should help with throttle response, if there was slack in the cable. I have to check mine.

In my i10 Kappa2 1.2 L the rpm is 500 in idle...how to increase
First question is, why do you want to increase your RPM at idle?

Secondly, to answer your question, to my knowledge, the idle RPM is controlled by the computer, there is a ‘fast idle’ when you start the car and the engine is cold, then once the engine coolant and 02 sensors warm up, the idle decreases to its regular RPM. I’m not sure how to increase the idle, but some posters above have referred to a screw on the IACV, but I’ve never done this myself.
