Have a 2006 jeep liberty that idles up and down and can die. However with the air in cab completely off it idles and runs fine. The air being on is the trigger. Any thoughts to how I can fix this?

Try cleaning the throttle body and throttle plate. Next is the idle air control passage, pintle and seat. If all that fails, look for vacuum leaks which can be crucial at idle where fuel is light and any leak will cause a lean mixture and stalling, especially with AC on and the vehicle in drive usually.

The idle air control valve (IAC) is designed to increase the idle speed when the AC compressor kicks in to prevent the engine from slowing to stall RPM. It also keeps the engine from run-on or dieseling when the car is shut off.

1997 honda accord ex idles at 400rpm when warmed up how do i adjust it to raise it lil bit

If this is fuel injected with actual injectors you may find an adjustment on the throttle cable at the motor. If it has what appears to be a manifold mounted carborator there will be a throttle idle adjustment that you can adjust to increase idle.

1997 hoda civic EX idles low

How low is low? Usually should be around 600-650 RPM's. If it is lower than that, look at cleaning the throttle body, and possibly a new IAC motor.

My car want to die and the lights come on and off then it die

Have you cleaned the throttle body? I assume this accures at idle correct? With the car running remove the air inlet pipe and spray cleaner (Kragen auto) into the intake, hold the throttle on to keep engine from dyeing, do this several times, then turn off engine and disconnect battery for 5 minutes at least and restart and throttle engine to clear out gunk, if the stall is due to sludge in the intake idle speed control port this should cure your problem, unless the idle speed control stepper motor is not functional.
