^ definitely a good call soldering and heat shrinking the wires. I know when I finally get to my power door swap I have to use my old harness to run from where its cut to connect to the hatch wiring. I have plenty of solder and shrink tube so I will be doing it right.
@ Mrwood, hope the info helped and good luck with your repairs.
It sounds like the wiper motor fuse that was jumpered caused a bigger headache.
If you find after fixing the wires that your wiper motor is dead, I have one with arm and new blade that I pulled out of my ZX3 doing the rear wiper delete. Id be happy to part with it for only shipping cost.
