Hi the service tech who re checked it said there were " no " codes at all! I believe this is what he based this diagnosis on. I have since driven nearly 90 miles with no change so far. thanks

Its a Drive-By-Wire. Unplug battery, push the brake pedal in, reconnect battery. With all accessories/AC off, let it idle for about 10 mins, turn AC on, let idle for another 10. It will let the ECU relearn your idle settings.
