Confirm the customer's complaint.
If the fault travels to Bank 1 then the cause will be the throttle motor itself. If swapping the Throttles over the fault code did not travel and change sides then the wiring would need to be checked and or repaired between the DME and the Throttle that is stored as faulty. If the wiring checks proved to be OK, then it would indicate a faulty DME but that is a very rare repair.
