Motorized Throttle MDK final stage failure

Hey guys,

I just got some errors on my car about the MDK

(A9 from peak handbook) Motorized Throttle MDK final statge failure and (A6) which does not exist in the book. Anyhow, I reset the CEL numerous times but the error codes will just not go away. I had the same codes before and after a reset they were cleared but this time they aren't being cleared. I think my throttle body really might be gone. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Also if I do change the TB then I read that I will also have to get the adaptations cleared and this is where my PEAKE tool is limited. I was thinking about getting the auto enginuity code scanner. Does anyone know of any other good code scanners and where I can get them? I have some friends that have the OBD2 cable that connects to their laptop and I was wondering if it's just a matter of getting the right s/w. Any help on this matter would be useful.
