Its located on the throttle body held in by two bolts, it has an electrical connection running to it.

Search the forum for IAC Cleaning. Lots of good write ups, and it's really simple.

Sounds pretty much like it could also be a bad battery. Might be worth charging it then getting it tested - it's also what the FSM states to do when trying to sort out any electrically related problem.
