Sounds like you "taught" the computer a new closed position for the IAC. Not sure if this will work, but it's worth a try. Unplug the IAC and, using a scan tool, clear the computer. Turn off the ignition then unplug the scan tool. Plug the IAC back in and then start the engine. I've never heard of this happening with the IAC but that's the procedure for resetting the EGR valve. So it may work for the IAC too. BTW an EGR valve that's sticking open can cause poor idling, stalling, and hard/no starting. HTH. -Jim
