The generic code P200a is for the throttle valve actuator. It could mean a few things: 1) the throttle valve was recently replace and needs to be calibrated. 2) the throttle valve is out of sync and needs to be calibrated 3) the throttle valve is just bad electronically or mechanically and requires replacement then recalibration. Note: for the recalibration a scanner for that vehicle is needed to access the engine module and perform the adaption and recalibration. Not all scanners have this function.
