I'd say the two probelms are one. The harness damage is causing the IC problem.

Pull loose enough of the two ends of the harness and start splicing the wires back together. They are color coded, so it should be easy to match them up, even if you have to add lengths in between. Solder the splices and use heat shrink tubing to insulate the joints. Remember to slip the heat shrink tubing over the wires BEFORE you solder up the joints.
