Thanks for the update. Good to know that you finally found it. Happy jeeping.

I have the same problem. Checked for air hose leakage, replaced IAC, and the PCM. The idle was at 2000 RPM constant. P0505 code after check engine light came on. 2001 4.7 V8. Idle went down after PCM was installed but started to rise a day later. Check engine came on and the code was back.

I like the Jeep. V8 4 wheel drive but not taken care of by previous owner. I am not a good mechanic but I will drop off and have the wires traced like you stated and hope this will solve the problem.

Yeh, best to have the wires checked for continuity and short to ground. I had attached the wiring diagram for the IAC at the beginning of this thread. You could print it out and take it with you to the mechanic, so that he know where/what to measure.

Just a short note Frank, it did take 150 miles before the new CPU finally regained it's memory. I knew it takes awhile but didn't think it would that many miles. As I said all is well now and passing emissions was a good feeling.
