your asking me something now ,havent seen one in years but the cables can be connected over with time and patience and a bit of solder is good as it doesnt corrode ,now the ballast resistor fitted with the siemans was a different type of circuit and as it was a bosch then wire it as the bosch was wired ,because the ballast resistor was used in conjuction with a 9v coil and when you cranked the engine it allowed full 12v voltage to the coil to give an increased spark under crank load ,never did work that well to be honest and the resistors often packed up so use it as the bosch system .On the siemans you had a wire from starter connection on ignition switch to coil and the ignition feed went through the resistor to the coil ,Simple enough but them resistors were a right pain in all honesty

You might try salvage yards for wiring harness & possibly Ebay. I tend to agree w/BMW cutting out sensor opens up a whole new can of worms. Check with independent shops locally.

Testimonial: "Thanks my friend. BMW designed a back door which over 5 years breaks the wiring passing through the hinge. They're geniuses aren't they. "
