Did you mess with anything else when you put the cold air intake on? Maybe the TPS has issues.

disconnect the negative battery wire. let it sit for like 15 minutes. then reconnect. Start up the jeep and let it sit at idle for like 20-30 minutes. this will reset the idle mapping in the computer. sometimes has to be done if you change the airflow. I had to do this when I fixed my exhaust leak.

or when you disconnect the battery , disconnect both the positive and negative cables, and touch and hold the two cables together for 30 seconds. this will discharge any juice in teh system quickly instead of waiting a long time for it to discharge.

dont do anything stupid like reconnect them backwards, or touch them together while your touching the battery or anything else that doesnt make sense.

this wil reset the computer right away
