I did the same thing a few months ago. The orange connectors on the driver's side had disintegrated due to the underhood heat and I disconnected them to affect a repair. When I next started the car, the SRS light came on (it flashes for about five minutes, then remains on until the the engine is stopped). You cannot reset this light without a special airbag reset tool. The local independent shop reset my SRS light for $10.00. Incidentally, these orange connectors are for the crash sensors, one on each side of the car. All the airbag-related components in the E32 are orange to identify them as strictly airbag items.

On my 1988 735i (160Kmi) the parking light fuse kept on blowing. While I was looking at wires in the hood, I noticed there was an orange connector mounted on each side. I thought it could be for lights. Opened right side one, it had three connections in the harness. Placed it back thinking that may not be it, started the car and SRS light started blinking. Geats steady after a while. Did I mes up something????? I also resoldered the musterd relay i the same visit AND rewired wiper washer bottle connections. AND tigtened the passenger wiper that was slipping. Any ideas?
