If you deliberately remove the harness once its running maybe, but if it was an intermittent fault right until the harness fails with the shutters closed then you'd be in deep trouble for assuming this to be the case.

The FSA states that if the harness fails when the ags is closed that powertrain damage may occur.

This is what the owner letter says describing the issue. It basically says that it can and may fail with the ags closed and then it won't re open since there is no signal, which could lead to powertrain damage.
