Have good clean around the throttle butterfly with carb cleaner type stuff I usually find this stops mine hunting. If the throttle doesn't close properly the idle control can't keep up. To check the throttle position sensor you really need to use an oscilloscope as multi-meters tend to average the voltage or resistance, so you wont see an issue.
