Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.
Most likely, your car's computer has 'lost' its basic idle parameters. This can happen when the battery goes dead, the battery is replaced, or the battery cables are removed from the battery.
The good news here is that there is nothing really wrong.
All you need to do is drive the car, hit passing gear a few times, pull off, let it idle, do some start-stop driving, and withing 10 miles the idle parameters will be reset
We have to do this drive-cycle every time we disconnect or change a battery in our shop..
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Stored 2yrs. installed new battery. won't keep charged. dead next morning.


You didn't mention how far if any you drove since installing battery. First jump start, put voltmeter in battery while idling - should read 13.1v-15.8v. Anything less, replace alternator. If good, load test new battery.

Diagnostics test says idle air control underspeed error? how do i fix 1999 ford explorer


change the idle air control valve.

Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve OPERATION The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve controls the engine idle speed and dashpot functions. The valve is located on the side of the throttle body. This valve allows air, determined by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and controlled by a duty cycle signal, to bypass the throttle plate in order to maintain the proper idle speed. Fig. 1: Typical Idle Air Control (IAC) valve which is mounted to the throttle body - cutaway view shows air bypass direction 89684g16.gif
--- REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. To remove the IAC valve, first disconnect the negative battery cable, then the IAC wire harness plug 89684p03.jpg
    Next, remove the two IAC valve attaching bolts . . . 89684p04.jpg
    . . . and pull the valve from the intake manifold 89684p05.jpg

  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the IAC valve.
  3. Remove the two retaining screws, then remove the IAC valve and discard the old gasket. To install: When installing the valve, always discard the old gasket and install it using a new one 89684p06.jpg

  4. Clean the IAC valve mounting surface on the throttle body of old gasket material.
  5. Using a new gasket, position the IAC valve on the throttle body. Install and tighten the retaining screws to 71-106 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm).
  6. Attach the wiring harness connector to the IAC valve.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.

Car stalling out


I just went through this. It's your Idle Air Control Valve probably going out. It's next to the throttle body right on top. Two bolts and a wire. Be sure to unplug negative side of battery before changing to get rid of that pesky check engine light! best of luck!
