On some of these Jeeps the ECM has to relearn the idle speed after you have replaced an idle component, make sure you throttle body is clean, then disconnect the battery, turn on your headlight switch, wait at least 30 seconds, turn off the switch, reconnect the battery, the ECM has now been reset to factory specs, set park brake and block wheels for safety, foot on brakes, start engine, if an automatic put in drive, if a stick put in neutral, turn on all accessories, ie heater fan headlight radio etc, let engine idle stablise, it can take a minute or two. If an automatic put in park and remove wheel blocks, if a stick make sure park brake is set and remove blocks, then drive as you normally do, this relearning the ECM on your driving style, this usually takes about 20 minutes of driving to complete. It should also pickup on any other faults in your system and turn on the check engine light if any are found. HTH
