It's called dieseling and it's caused by the self ignition of the fuel in the cylinder because there's a lot of carbon buildup in it. You can either dismantle the engine or use a specialized fuel additive to clean it.

1988 Toyota Corolla high idle with lights on


Because it's carbeurated they have an electric 'idle up' solinoid (or vacuume) to compensate for rev loss when load is put on the engine caused by the alternator working harder because your using power. It should have a small adjustment screw on the carbeurator to lower the revs. If you have it set too low it will shudder when in drive & foot on brake with headlights on. It should only pick up about 200rpm when lights are on. To find the screw, take the air filter off, run the engine & look for something moving when the lights are turned on & off. Somewhere near the moving bit you will find the adjustment screw. I hope. I'm not sure exactly where it is on that model.
