If the harness is the problem (sounds very likely), I would suggest fixing
it "correctly". Use a soldering iron, cover the joints in heat shrink
tubing, cover the whole thing in heat shrink tubing - preferably the type
that has glue in it so it becomes water tight.

Heat shrink tubing should be available at any electronic parts store (Radio
Shack for example) or at many auto parts stores. Obviously, this assumes you
have a soldering iron, heat gun, and ability to use both.

I fixed the harness in my 1994 90S that way. Works great and doesn't take up
much more space than the original harness.
