Here is a how to write up incase anyone wants to know how to fix the pigtail on a Ford Focus.

Special thanks to Feral, The norm, and Bullitt5177 for helping me out when I

Mine was the ignition coil pigtail.

Good write-up! If you know how to solder, it is the perfered method (over butt connectors) for reattaching wires.
