when you turn the ac on, you should be able to hear the radiator fan kick in. if not, there's your problem. common problem with pt fans.

Went looking around at older threads and the Internet. Three things came up. The Power Steering Pressure switch sends a signal to the PCM to raise the idle when the power steering is used to compensate for the small loss of power. If the IAC is cleaned and working properly, the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) (also located on the TB) could be at fault as well as built up carbon inside the throttle body affecting the butterfly control.

The Clockspring inside the steering wheel came up but it was also related to the radio which had problems and it all related to the wires than ran down the steering column, but you didn't mention any other problems.
