[DML] Extra wire on thermotime switch

I have a "easy button" you might say, located under the dash of my D.   When 
it starts hard, all I do is press this little magic button and my car  starts. 
Evidently it was installed by a previous owner. It seems to be connected  by 
a blue wire to the thermotime switch. If I read the Tech Info Manual  
correctly, the thermotime switch activates the cold start valve when the motor  
cranks, for a limited time if the engine temp is cold. It is energized by the  
starter solenoid. Am I right so far? Anyway, does the fact that this "work  around" 
helps mean my starter solenoid isn't sending current to the cold start  
valve, or what?  When I start my engine at present, it's always cold enough  at 
present to call for this circuit. What do I need to correct so that the  engine 
starts normally without pushing the "easy button?" The thermotime switch  is 
new, BTW.
