Hello all,

So, my 2015 Primavera suddenly wouldn't start. When we opened it up to look, found out that all three lead wires to my throttle position sensor have broken. (Nice.)

I am assuming that harness would be a PITA to pull and replace. But is there any reason I couldn't just jumper that with some better quality wire, wrap it with some heat-resistant cable wrap, and just keep on going? If I peel back the cable assembly a half-inch or so, there's totally room to solder and heat shrink each wire before wrapping it all up.

Seems much more reasonable than pulling the harness, IMO.

Thanks much,
DH

I ain't an expect but I can't see any issues with repairing how you say.

But I gotta wonder how it happened in the first place ...
