Default idle problem

I drive a 94 pontiac bonneville and I'm having problems with it. When I start the car, it will cut off if I don't give it some gas. And sometimes when I'm driving it also cuts off on me. When im at a red light stopped, it growls especially when i turn the steering wheels. I also noticed that ever since I had this problem the battery indicator will go down until i hit the gas pedal in which it will go back up. I know its not the starter and i just got fuel injector cleaners put in but that didnt seem to do it. Does anyone know the problem or have faced something similar before?

A couple of things to do as a start. Disconnect your battery cables, and pull the boots off. Clean up the corrosion you're likely to find there, and apply some dielectric grease. Clean off the other ends of the cables, also.

Then, pull your throttle body, give it, you idle air control (IAC), and mass air flow sensor (MAF) a good cleaner, using this procedure from techinfo.
