SOURCE: 98 JEEP CHEROKEE CODE P0505
That error code is idle control system malfunction. You need to replace your idle air controller (IAC). IAC basically opens and closes the throttle at idle so it stays at constants RPM. Hope this helps. Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

P0505 means the whole Idle Control system, not only the IAM. Check all related sensors (i.e. crankshaft sensor). Check with a voltmeter direct at the connector of the IAM if you get any signal. Remove the IAM from the TB, connect him, let someone switch your ignition key to ON. The IAM need to drive in/out for a short time to find the right position. Hold the IAM near a hard part, that they cant drive out completely! If IAM works fine, check the fuel pressure, check and clean your TB ( if not done yet). If that doesn't work, come back again please
