Did you also clean your IAC? (Idle Air Control Valve) If so and no results, you may need to replace it. Here's a short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfauGoGXCmo

I don't think I've ever run across an IAC code. It's easy to clean. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C419kwrH0vE ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez5ykPAMG8k
