Thanks a bunch for the diagrams! I searched the engine compartment and could not find a like solinoid ,the car is a 86 Euro model 500 SE that has had a Euro 420 engine installed (I really like the Euro 420 engine)it has the E/S sliding switch on the console but perhaps when they changed out the engine they left out the solinoid and plugged the the line.

I can see no advantage to second gear starts other than heavy ice and snow driving witch we dont have. Seem like you have to get weight in motion and a first gear start should not affect fuel usage with a moderate driving style,I also do very little city driving and live in the Mts. where a first gear start is handy.......
