When you are done splicing them I would highly recommend re-routing them out of the present harness holders and let them come straight down between seat pad and trunk back. Then you will not have this problem again. Many have had the same problem as you and this simple fix works...

I might be inclined to pull the harness to repair it anyway. But that's how I roll. It must have been very tight in there to cause that much damage. Or your previous owner did something. No crashes I hope. Good luck with your repair.

I guess I have a job to do now. They are all broken.
Is your GW a trike? If not any idea how the wires got cut or broken?
Our GW is a trike and I'm hoping they didn't cut our wires.

No, its not a trike. That harness is very tight. Not sure how this happened. Almost looks like someone cut them

Very common problem.

Usually it is when they get caught by the hinge it slices them, or if you look close when you close the lid and open it you can see the severe bend in the wire harness with the very small wires in it and the repeated open & close, it is just a matter of time before 1 or all break.

Very poor design just to make them look hidden. Very simple to re route them. MANY on this board have done it without any further problem.

I ordered one of those this morning as well. We had emailed back and forth concerning the compatibility. I sent them the FCC ID# and they said it was a match. I will know in a few days if it works. Hopefully so. Everyone else wants $80 or more for the same remote.

Can't believe some of the bone-headed maneuvers Honda pulls these last 20 yrs. Had to do my Re-route about 7-8 yrs ago.

The '05 must be different that your bike. I have one huge cluster of wire on the right, not two like your's show unless you separated your's to do that. Working on it today, soldering and rerouting it.

The later years have speakers in the rear from the factory, this is the left side harness in his picture.
