Please help identify this key-like button in a 1981 Mercedes 240D

Dear friends,

I'm not familiar with diesel cars. I would like to know the name
and purpose of the key-like button (with the label Adecco attached to it) as shown in the attached image of a 1981 Mercedes 240D.

Thank you very much for your precious help.

Best regards,

That's the idle adjustment. Mostly useful for cold weather starting.

It doesn't help for STARTING, it simply allows you to run at a fast idle while the engine is cold.

Have a great day,
