Clean teh throttle plate on both sides as well as iac valve with choke cleaner, then check fuel pressure and battery condition. You may not have all those codes and giving a flase reading due to low battery. Spray choke cleaner around for vacuum leaks even though you checked and check vacuum hoses for being disconnected, split or broken.
