Have somebody clean the throttle body and the air port for the "idle air control" .there is probably carbon build up and this wont set off any lights or codes because the electronic part of it all is reading ok....can't say for sure but the engine probably needs a little more air at idle.....or drive with two feet to open the throttle a little

Power Steering Pressure switch inoperative, to verify unplug the switch and jump the terminals on the connector, idle should kick right up.
