Is it an Auto? Maybe a kick down switch?

Maybe a kick down switch? I have one on my benz. Although it would be odd in today's world of Computers and Throttle position sensors.

I know that my wife's 2000 TDI beetle doesn't do that, but it is a 5 speed manual.

its a switch that gives the car more fuel when the throttle is fully depressed via the injection pump. also it cuts power from the ac to give the extra power that the ac takes to the car
