It might be instructions explaining how to fit one of those blasted resistors you see on ebay...

I always assume that it would be instructions on how to clean the throttle body. pretty simple task if you ask me.

Edit, A few minutes of googling has revealed. At least on the Mercedes version of the same product, it involves an ignition key/throttle pedal procedure to reset the Auto gearbox ECU.

Chances are then, it is instructions to disconnect the battery to reset the ECU.

i dont understand people who do this, we all come on forums and freely share knowledge, they want to sell it for the sake of a couple of quid.

i think its ECU reset instructions and/or throttle position reset instructions.
