What does this part do on a 1984 300D Benz?

So im looking to get a 1984 300D Benz in Salem, OR
It has 201k on it and looks to be in very good shape. Very very little rust if any.. engine section looks clean etc etc

Only problem is right now it will not turn over. The owner thinks its something electrical , possibly this box?

He said if he 'jumped' the starter it would turn over but he tried to jump it from , not from the starter, but from the top left engine compartment one time and he smelled an electrical burning smell.

so im wondering if anyone knows what this box is or if anyone lives near salem, OR?

ps. the car in the pic is not the car i am looking to buy.. its just for illustrative purposes.

Thanks,
Austin
