-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Drove it for a bit and nothing works??
Generally speaking, if the idle control motor cannot control the idle speed, then there is some excess air entering the engine.....like a vacuum leak.
Maybe have a look and make sure that there aren't any vacuum hoses that got knocked off.
If you don't see a vacuum leak, then your idle motor maybe be caked up in carbon and crud, preventing it from moving freely.
In this case I would suggest a thorough cleaning of the throttle body and idle motor.........which is attached to the side......using an old toothbrush and a can of carb cleaner.
Worse case scenario, you may need to replace the idle motor.
Just a few thoughts for you.....
Normally, a dead battery has the opposite effect........the engine doesn't want to idle unless you keep your foot on the pedal until the PCM relearns how to idle the engine.
Any chance you jumped this backwards....or anything like that?
Everything went well on the jump start, fairly certain I connected correctly. What would I see had I not?
You would have had sparks..........I was just wondering if there was a chance of engine computer damage from jumping backwards.
So, if that is ok, I would go back to my previous suggestion.
