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.
