Coincidence. In order to get the effect that is described, the gas pedal
would need to be pressed far enough to actuate the mechanical kickdown
linkage... though the description doesn't actually say that the switch
is being activated by the pedal, it would be rather hard to press it
Both Audi training docs and the Bentley say that the switch is to
cut out the AC compressor under full throttle. For those years,
I know of no electrical connection to the transmission at all.
