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.
