Right entirely. But for many machines after re-hitching the battery, you
need to re-set the TPS range by turning on the key switch (but not starting
the engine) and then giving the throttle two full-range cranks.

Given Bosch's secretive nature, not clear what dire consequences ensue if
you fail to perform this calibration (surging above 10,000 feet???).
