Check engine light- throttle body motor

I've got an 08 TRD sport with 90K on the clock. Recently the check engine light came on and I had to start it twice each time to keep it going. The dealer ran their diagnostics and said it was the throttle body motor was ioperative. A $900 part.
Anybody had any experience with this?

It drives fine other than having to start it twice. The drive by wire seems OK, but the light is always on.

Go figure?
