Problems with '07 Commander

My commander keeps reving up on it's own and I need to know where I should begin to look at it myself to try and avoid spending alot of money. Also, I don't know if this will help, but I've also had problems with my AC turning off on it's own. I don't know if the two are somehow related. I took it to the shop and they charged me $150 for some new switch and it's still not working. Now, they are saying it is the control panel for the AC and it's at least $1000 to replace. My main concern is the jeep reving up on it's own. It's like I'm hitting the gas when I'm not.

How long have u had your commander ? Im asking you this cause the previous owner might of ported the throttle body and from my past experience a ported throttle body on my wifes commander caused all sort of problems so you might want to start there.

Bought it off the lot in 08 brand new with only 300 or so miles on it. So, I've had for 5 years. Warranty was only good for 3.

Start by cleaning your throttle body

I changed out the IAC thinking that would matter but it didn't. Guess I'll try to clean the throttle body next like y'all suggested. I'll have to Google how in the world to do that...seeing as how I'm a girl and all

Thanks for the advice guys. The mechanic thought cleaning the throttle body was it but it was the shifter sensor. Just thought I'd let ya know. Thanks again!
