once the battery is back to normal it should return to normal, i know this because i have had the same prob. i thought was the Idle Air Control (IAC) basically the battery was too low to, i think, set the proper adjustment to make it idle, keep it running once it is recharched and cycled through a start or two it should come back to normal in no time tho, if anything after the battery is charged disc, the battery turn the key on for 30 sec and reconnect the battry that will reset it.
