Explanation:
splitter button

Wyhlidal, Kraftfahrzeugtechnisches Wörterbuch ISBN 3-923195-01-X:
Splitschaltung = splitter shift (etc.)

AltaVista (any language) “splitter shift” 8 pages found; e.g.:
>> Low Inertia Transmission --- a splitter type transmission that allows preselection of the splitter button in all compound shifts (both downshifts and upshifts). By moving the splitter to the front of the auxiliary gearbox, it became possible to require the splitter shift collar to bring only the mass of the front transmission's mainshaft to synchronous speed during a compound shift. This type of transmission helps prevent certain types of abuse (especially of the shift collar which engages and disengages the splitter) that occurs with inexperienced drivers.<<

Explanation:
Split button switch?
Hard to ascertain intent without context.
"Split" is not a German word, but "splitt" (meaning chip splinter, fragment) is a German word. Could it be misspelled?
