Angry BMW 635i help

I have a question which i have yet to find help with.
First of all i replaced a starter and flywheel in my 1985 BMW 635i because it was grinding away. Next i did some basic maintenance including ignition coil because it wasn't starting up. Ran well for a while and recently since its been cold it has intermittently been not starting up. I have been looking at it over and over, to remember that there are 2 wires (brown & green) which are not connected to anything, but remember taking them off of the starter. Now i have forgotten where they go. I thought maybe i was wrong and they went to the Cold Start Valve, except when looking at the cold start valve it is plugged in. Any help would be Greatly appreciated!!!!

Wow, that is a great site. Although they did not have the diagram with those two wires. Bummer!

Alright so I went through everything and noticed that once again it has no spark. Not even from the Coil which I already replaced. Any way to tell if all the sensors are working properly?

Diagnostics, but I would say its your crankshaft sensor as the camshaft sensor mainly takes care of the injectors.
