Its there to protect many engine electronics and controls. M-B redesigned the part several times and over the years its caused a lot of odd behavior. For example on my '87 300D the A/C would turn off in traffic in hot weather, and finally, driving home from work one day, the ABS, SRS lights came on and the tach went to zero. My mechanic went straight for the OVP, pronounced it an antique, surprised it last as long as it did, and put in a newer one.
