possible to fix wiring thats...
 
Somehow the wire leading to the iacm plug was cut almost all the way through on one of the wires before i purchased the car. Its sliced right at the plug, not leaving enough to strip and reconnect. Is there a way to fix this? I cant find one at a salvage yard to just swap out. Can the plug be dissambled somehow to fix? Thanks

Dunno, but you stand a good chance of making it worse. Your best bet is to find a junkyard, cut the cable leading to the connector with plenty of slack, then strip and solder each wire - color-code matching.
Get heat shrink tubing, cut about 1" pieces and slide a piece on each wire - you slide it over the solder joint and heat it with a lighter or heat gun.

Most harness plugs have wire crimped to the end of a metal piece that is pressed into the plug body. Alot of times they will pull out the backside with a firm pull. Get some needlenose pliers and try pulling them out to find enough meat to solder to. Sounds like it can't get any worse.

If you solder, don't forget the flux.
