Default unidentifiable module

Not sure if my pic uploaded but there is a module under the drivers side dash and I am not sure what it is. Some one had a wire bypassed and a toggle switch attached. Any help would be appreciated

Will do. Has a p/n 136-1820. Did a search but nothing showed up that resembles it, and don't have a factory manual.

can you elaborate on the wiring which is attached to the device? That will allow us to hopefully shed more light. Also, are there any other markings/Ids on the other side of the device?

I'll try to trace them out. But there are no other markings on it. It does have 2 adjustable switches on it.

Those are the numbers. Is that a factory installed item, or aftermarket

I only have the original key. Just wonder since I took the toggle switch off not sure why it was on there. If it is the reason car won't start. And can I get a replacement key fob.

So perhaps you should start at the beginning:

Does you car start?
Did it start before you physically removed the toggle switch?

The toggle switch is simply a bypass for the car alarm/starter. When it is removed, the car will not actually start. Simply reinstalling it and then turning off the switch will allow you to start the car normally, but not auto-turn on the features such as remote start.

As for replacement fobs, do a search and you will find PLENTY of options.

good luck

Yea. It started everyday. I got a car I am trying to restore. Love the car and it has had a lot of hands in it over the years. Just trying to get advice. I appreciate your knowledge and advice. I hooked the wires back up and it's on the charger now. See what happens. Thank you very much. Need to get this starting issue resolved so I can change tranny oil and filter. And I don't know much about German vehicles. Thank you again for the help.
