No...its part of the DWA system (anti-theft alarm siren system). If the car is (double locked)...and someone tried to pry open the hood, the alarm would go off.

Or, as many e39 owners have found out, when the sensor breaks off or becomes unseated, or doesn't sit correctly on the microfilter housing from the years of extreme heat...the alarm goes off at the most embarrassing times of day. :D
