WON'T IDLE

1996 Jeep Cherokee

My Grand Cherokee Laredo will start but won't idle. You have to keep your foot on the pedal to keep it running.

This just started yesterday when I had to jump start. It sat up for a couple of weeks and I figured the battery must have gone bad.

Anyway, why does it not idle and what can I do about it?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Check the idle air control motor and the throttle position sensor also might need a computer relearn.
