Very easy if you just followed the directions. Do you have a soldering iron? I recommend you use a soldering iron and either electrical tape or shrink wrap. Just solder the cut wire back together and tape up the connection or put shrink wrap on it and heat it to seal the connection. Your back to normal.

After that try following the instructions again to see if it works.

Haha, I would just try to rewire it, and if your not that great with wiring, just run on in to the dealer.

How close did you cut it off at the harness? You could just put a butt connector to make it go back to original.

well I was talking over to somebody at FJ and they said its not working because I did the foglight mod. So tomorrow morning I will get up and put the relay back in and if that doesn't work I will do as Elite Aviator says and just solder it back together and shrinkwrap it.
And I am pretty sure I did it right because I dont see how you can mess up on cutting one wire. I dont think I'm that dumb. lol

Ya I dont think I want to go to the dealer with this one and say "I need you guys to sauder a wire for me because I was trying to modify my lights and it didn't turn out how I expected it too" I'm sure someone in the back will be laughing. Besides they will probably charge me out the for something like that, just because I'm young and dumb
