99 VW Bug will not start...Computer??

My 99 Bug sat for 2 mos. A felllow had
a hot jump box. It started ran a few min
and then sputterd out and will not
start. It cranks but will not start.
I took it to a fellow who works on bugs
The checked the fuel pump, alternater
spark. Put it on his dionostic and got a
P1543.. Throttle Acuater low.

Long story he can't get it going.
He said he called the VW shop
150 miles away. They thought the computer needed to be reset.

Anybody have any thoughts on this?

Ya, get it to someone with a clue!

Does it have spark and fuel? First two things to verify. If you don't have that at the right time, you're dead in the water.
