icv needs replaced when the car over revs or under revs especially at idle but it can be many other things including a split in a intake pipe so it may be beat to pop it into the dealers you can spend a fortune buying small bits trying to sort it

My money is on abs test too. Mine does it, sometimes louder than others! Not noticed a pattern yet.
