1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a Jeep grand cherokee and I just changed the fuel filter and the fuel pump. When I start the car it starts and after about 30 sec it will die it wont stay started. The fuel pump goes on, but the Jeep wont stay started. If I rev the engine when I start it it will stay started once I let go of the gas pedal it will die it wont idle. Please help me I have to take the children to school on monday. Thank you!

Inspect and test the idle air control motor, EGR valve and throttle position and manifold absolute pressure sensor-

I had a similar idle problem a while ago and I fixed it by resetting the computer. Unplugging the negative battery cable for a few seconds resets it. Worth a shot anyway. It's easy to do.
