This just occurred in my car. 2012 Ford Focus. I stripped the wires back a bit to leave rooom to reconnect them but I need to add wire to make it work. I don’t have any wire other than some speaker wire which I believe is two conductor. Can I use that?

I would probably get some more appropriate wire, but in general, yes, you should be able to splice in some other wire. Most speaker wire can be split by pulling the two conductors apart. make sure that the wire is of at least a similar size, and be sure to insulate the splice well.

It's not a terribly difficult job, but there are things that can go wrong.

Thanks! I'll stop at Home Depot and get some wire for it. Any chance anyone knows what gauge wire it is? Looks pretty thin.

I think I'm just going to buy another harness, personally. Less work than splicing and connecting to see if it works. Especially since the wires aren't all marked and some are the same colors (like two sets of solid black).

Good luck! I wound up not needing extra wire but I'm not sure how long my reconnect will last. I would totally order the part if I could figure out how to pop off all the inside trim to access the wiring.
