Default 2002 S60 Limp Home Mode

I got a "reduced engine power" and "service engine soon" message about a year ago. The engine won't rev more than 2,000 rpm. I had the code read and it's the throttle body module. If I switch the ignition to OFF and then to RUN again really quick, it goes away and the car drives just fine. I did some digging around on the Internet and found that 2001-early 2002 S60s have a recall for bad throttle body modules that go into a limp home mode when it's not necessary. A simple SW upgrade fixes it. When I called the dealership and gave them my VIN, they said that my 2002 is a later model that has a different throttle body module than the one in the recall. They want $115 just to check it out and then $900 to replace the throttle body module. The cases I read on the Internet had several people paying for a new throttle body and then the issue coming back within a month. I really don't think it's the throttle body module. I've been driving it like this for almost a year (whenever it goes into limp home mode, I switch OFF and ON really quickly and it's fine.) Anyone have any ideas?

Did just cleaning it out fix it? I have the same problem. Although 2003 Volvo s60. I didn't start noticing the problem till I plugged a 600 watt coffee maker into a max 100 watt lighter plug. Plug still works. Just wondering if I shorted a relay or fuse.
