Disconnecting the battery causes the computer to lose memories it probably has to go thru a relearning process

Got'cha! Tow it to the dealer to have "minimum throttle" relearned with their special, (and expensive) equipment. Never, never, EVER disconnect the battery on a Volkswagen or let it run dead. To do so means "get out your wallet!
