Did it split the wire in two or just scrape the insulation off? If it just scraped the insulation off get some heat shrink take and unhook each wire one at a time put the heat shrink on heat it then reconnect that wire. Then continue with the rest and you should be good. Check and see if the lights work as you go. If everything works then wrap the entire group with electrical tape sealing it completely.

Hi,
Why even bother fixing the old, damaged one when you can replace it for $18.00?
By the time you buy all the tapes, shrink wrap ect... you can buy a new wire.
just my 2 cents.
Here is a link to a new pigtail.

Had no Idea they were that cheap the plug end usually costs more than that.

Still going to need the butt connectors and shrink tube to hook in the new cable but it is the way I would go.

Hi,
I did not think the pigtails were that cheap either to tell the truth. The link provided was for a 3' piece. The 8' pigtail is under $50.
One of the post above stated 3 hour install? That would be 25 minutes per wire?
I would count on the professional time frame for under 1 hour max on the switch out. My guess would be he spent 35 minutes and billed the full hour.
Should take less time to switch out than the repair.
