'95 cherokee idling problems.

It's the wife's DD. It has a straight six in it, but I know little more than that. She bought it from her Mom, who was religious about service/PM.

She calls me Thursday and tells me it won't start/turn over at all. Ran just fine the previous day. She uses my burb in the meantime (she hates driving the burb), I get home friday night, put a charger on the dead battery, and discover the interior light was left on. Seemed like an easy fix.

So once the battery was charged (this morning), I crank it up. It didn't want to start until I pedaled the throttle a bit, and it fired right up. I let off the throttle and it died when it returned to idle speed.

I can feather the throttle and keep it running, and it seems to run just fine. If I let off the throttle it will die like I cut the key off.

Nothing else had changed, Jeep was running just fine before, now this problem has arisen.

Any ideas? TPS? Some fuse somewhere I need to look at? I drive older stuff w/o all the computer crap on them, so I can diagnose those things easy. The jeep has never given us a minute's trouble in the two years we've had it, until now. It's got to be something simple.

Thanks,
Jay

Idle speed motor possibly, if the battery was dead it may have lost its baseline setting. Reset it by disconnecting battery, reconnect battery turn key to the on position do not start it, leave key on about 5 minuets it should relearn. If not it is most likely the idle speed motor is bad.

Resetting it. Disconnected the batt, waited about a minute, reconnected, turned the key into the "on" position, came in the house and set the oven timer to 5 minutes, went back out and cranked it right up. It idles fine now.

Help appreciated on this one, starting another thread on an issue I'm having with my '71. Let's see if ya can go two for two. LOL!
