multipin connector cord in glove box

My 2005 Z4 has a cord in the glovebox that comes through a grommet in the upper left of the glove box. The connector on the end of the cord has many many pins in it. I'm curious what this if for. I have been through all of my original books, and can't find any reference to it. I've also searched on line but haven't found anything. I found this while looking at the fuse block. My screen for my radio and navigation doesn't work, and I was hoping to find a bad fuse. The fuse was good, and in the process I found this multipin connector/ cord. So now my curiousity won't let me rest until I find out what it's for.
