Know what happens when U cut the wrong wire?

...does Toyota cover under warranty any wiring work done to ur car? I cut my third brake light wire off to install a Carbon Fiber mid section with a 3rd brake light and was planning on connecting the wires back but with no luck and now my brake lights themselves DO NOT light up whenever I brake. Any help would be appreciated. Flames not welcome but I am open to some "positive feedback". spineyes

Oop! I'm taking to a body shop to see wat they can do. I think Toyota will be a last resort since they charge a million bux for everything and anything to be done.

It is a simple fuse actually. But my major problem is taking off my left side wing since I dropped my third brake light harness in there. >:C If I can get into that and then splice my wires on my new Carbon Fiber mid section then (in theory) I can get it working again.

Does that plug and harness only have to do with the 3rd brake light or wit it fix all my brake lights? Cuz I remember yesterday before I spliced anything, I removed the 3rd brake lights plug from its harness and my tail light brakes still worked.
