I've been told that the throttle has two motors- in case one fails the backup takes over. The failure of the first may cause a fault.

Had the EML light come on. Tried to download fault codes, but there seems to be none- only short blink and pause, continually.
Is the car at risk of damage if driven until I can figure out the problem?
Does anyone have similar expirience?
