First Check Engine light...

I got my first check engine light.. And I scanned it and it's a P505, my Idle Air Control System. My dad said he replaced that almost a year ago so it shouldn't be time to even replace it yet.. Any clue what could solve this problem?

I cleaned the IACV two times in the past few days and my cel keeps returning and once it returns, my rpm goes crazy again making it hard for me to catch it whenever I'm switching gears..
