Problems with AA charger

I am getting several codes, including:
P505 Idle Air Control System

Anyone got any idea what this may be? I have gone over everything several times and everything seems ok, but the idle also surges when stopping at a light the idle will kick up to about 1500 several times before resting at 800-900.

It was ok, until I got on it hard once, it went into limp mode, we found a couple of blown off vacum hoses, fixed it, and now I keep getting weird codes.

Yeah, you have to resecure and tighten up all the hoses and clamps. Those large vacuum leaks can cause serious problems and driveablity problems.

After you tighten up all the clamps, clear the faults and test drive it again.
