Code P0505 stands for Idle Air Control (IAC) Malfunction. Anything that affects the idle control system could be the cause. This could be anything from the IAC control circuit (PCM, wiring, etc.) to a mechanical problem such as a vacuum leak. A good diagnostic technician will be able to pinpoint the problem instead of just throwing parts at the vehicle. Have an expert inspect the Check Engine Light in person so that you can have this fault corrected.
