    Hey I made a huge mistake earlier today. I was installing my Auto Dim mirror in my tacoma and i was going to tie into my line which gives power to the tempertuare and direction control. Well when i cut the wire, I cut it to short to the little white plug. The wire is wrapped in light green. Now it is so close to the plug that I can't reconnect, the only way I could get power was to connect the wire back to the white plug by using electrc tape and taping it back. I am worried that it is a temporary fix and not something which will stay. Any sugguestion what I can do?

    u can remove the pin in the connector and replace the pin and it will look like u never cut it.
