Since so many people have commented ...
Check the circuit _carefully_.  On the MB engine, the pump is controlled by 
J155 switching relay J26 (diagram 39, tracks 34-39).  The thermoswitch does not 
control whether the pump runs or not - it provides an alternate source of volts 
when the ignition is off.  Bridging the contacts of the thermoswitch will _not_ 
necessarily make the pump run - unlike the cooling fan.
J155 is essentially a timer.

Although the 200T might well be different ...  as might the next MB Audi built.
