What are these wires for?

1988 560SL. While reinstalling aux water pump after repair, I found these wires and plugs dangling near mono valve. But I couldn’t find any empty sockets?

the upper pair of wires/pins look like they should go to a lamp socket. The other one has a plastic connector with two pins: 2 brown and 2 blk/yel to each pin.
Any ideas?

Roncallo, I couldn't find any part number on the harness.
RDelpino, I don't think it's for the sensor in your photo. Those are already connected on mine. Here's the underside of the connector:

And this is the switch mentioned:

What does it switch?
It looks like something is missing here...

And I can't see any evidence of burglar alarm on mine?

Is there any way of knowing if an alarm was installed, where it is, or what it would look like? Or how it is armed/disarmed?
