Disconnecting 745 battery

What are the danger of disconnecting the battery on a 2004 745. Will it require a trip to the dealer to reset the computer or will it just reset things like radio stations?

Radio stations and crap like that.

BTW, what do you want to disconnect the battery for?

I installed the predator ice module and my led next to the switch to turn on the headlamps is blinking. I'm wondering if resetting the computer will fix it (I turned the car on multiple times during the install and think it may have freaked out the system) or if something is wrong with the hardware they sent. I did the install exactly as depicted in the step by step instuctions so I dont think I have a problem there.

I've disconnected the battery several times with no problems. Once was to reset my headlights too.
