    Ko since I know I'm a dumb-dumb this may sound stupid but what about electrical tape. Unless the brading is toast I would think that if you wrapped the wires in tape that should get ya by for a bit. Fixed the 94 Suburban out in the sticks one time. Good luck to ya.

    I think your wires off your truck or blazer would work
