If problem started after you changed battery,try undoing positive cable for a few minutes,may be reset the ecm,there is no idle adjustment on your car,it is adjusted by your ecm. If problem continue,s, could be low voltage from bad battery may have shorted the throttle position sensor.

Drive it around a little bit. Some in city and some highway. Usually relearns in about 6 -10 miles. Also turn ac on for some of the driving.

Yes you are right. After turning on the car, immediately turned the AC and headlight as well. It checks and store the data to ECU which is the minimum required idle Engine speed and not to turn off. Also some of them recommended to clean the throttle body, which may further help as a periodic maintenance. Thanks a lot guys
