Default IAC Valve Problem

today i went to change my iac valve and went i put the new one on n started it up it kept idling at 3,000 rpms and wouldnt go down. i tried ding what most people do, unhookingbattery, holding the terminals together to drain it all and reser the computer, and even after it reseting i let it idle for lik 5 or 6 min straight and still wouldnt fix it. i decided to putmy old one on n it idled correctly. i then switched the new one on and it immediatly wentback to the 3,000 rpm thing again. anyone got any suggestions.
