They allow the US cars that were designed to start out in 2nd gear to instead start out in first gear.

Last year MB had only one or two of the wiring harnesses for the FGS left.
I have probably a half dozen modules laying around, plus two harness (not for sale).
On Euro cars, the FGS was usually connected to a switch next to the gear indicator of the shifter to start the car in either second, or first gear (see below). A 'First Gear Start' forum search will get more info.
Cheers

Hi Marcus, the bottom two, plus one frontal and plug view would be great in the DIY.
If you would be so kind and post them there, I would add the shifter pic?
Cheers
