In answer to your question about the switch on the throttle linkage - this is connected to the ECU and sets IDLE SPEED, so it works with the cold start system - pushes against the throttle lever and increases idles speed at startup.
If it fails and the throttle linkage is very tight on the 'closed' position, it may affect starting - but not in the way you have been experiencing.
