Default Iíve done a bad thing

Hi , well my wife has done a bad thing . She never used the phone attachment in the middle arm rest and it was also a bit broken so she wanted to remove it so she cut through the wires attached to it , the corded one with about 4 wires in it and now she canít get any gears , there is no light on the gear stick and you canít select any of the gears . Any ideas what she has done? Thanks for any info

Quite a man who will take the blame for his wife, lol! Did she simply cut them or rip the wires out entirely? If the former, just splice them back together. If the latter, you will probably have to remove the console entirely to locate the ends and then put a splice back in.
