How did you bypass the sensor? Did you use a fixed resistance or a variable unit, either way the resistance is wrong causing the ECM to boost idle to max, this will cause your ISC to jamb or burn out, you really need to test the engine control system. Go to: http://www.extreme-check-engine-light- codes.com/Ford%20OBD1%20Decoder.htm That will show how it is done.
