I have an 02 Seville... Is this relearning process necessary? I replaced the tps and it ran well I then realigned the screws as I lost one in the replacing process. After I did this it started running irratic again. I also didn't disconnect the battery on installation or when rescrewing. The new part also began revving at 4+k rpms, I am gonna return the part. But is the battery that important and should I do a relearn cycle?

you can't simply bolt in a new TPS -
there is a special procedure that MUST be followed -
to SET-UP the new TPS -

Just keep in mind if you look for it in the forum that you are looking at the right TPS setup. It seems to vary a bit, especially if someone used the wrong terminology for a 4.9L post.

A '02 N* uses a IAC, and the throttle is physically non-adjustable - which means closed throttle has to be a real closed throttle. What kind of 'setup' would the TPS need? It should bolt on in only one position... Plug and play, no?

What's 're-aligning the screws'?

Yup. Plug and play, no adjustments or setup possible.
