PCM will need to run drive cycle before idle can be corrected in most cases when battery disconnected

Check for light in trunk
Check interior light
Check battery and have it tested as it may be a bad cell
Do a battery drain test

If no idle problem prior to the battery issue
And driving it didn't correct the idle
Throttle body and IAC valve need to be cleaned
