Ok when you disconnect the battery and reconnect it, sometimes carbon buildup on the throttle plate can cause the pcm to relearn the closed throttle at an partially open position. Remove the air cleaner tube to the throttle body and clean the throttle plate of any carbon buildup. Disconnect and reconnect the battery after a few minutes and start the engine, clear out the carb cleaner spray it will run rough til you burn it out. If you still have issues its most likely throttle body codes such as P2111 P2112 to name a few. It is covered by an extended warranty recall number 13N03 which you can call any local ford dealer and see if the recall is open on your vehicle and have the throttle body replaced for free.
