Default rookie move i pulled

I showed up at the gym and shut my door and it would not close. After 5 minutes of fooling around with it with no luck I noticed the door hinge bolts were half inch. That is the only socket size I had laying around so I took my rambo knife and sliced all the cables and poped of my doors. Not realizing my dome light and radio have no power now.

I like the fact that I tossed the doors In the shed but I don't like the fact I don't have a radio and dome. I looked up wire diagrams but can I just loop the wire back to itself or the negitive and have it bipass the door speakers? So I have a radio and same with the dome? Or will I have to put the doors back on?

I don't need any parenting on how yanked doors is dangerouse or illegal. I plan on making half or tube doors but who knows.

Do you have a single or supercab?
Do you have REAR speakers?
If you dont,You can install door speakers in your rear
Of the truck and have sound.

The Cut door speaker wires need to be separated and protected
With elect tape at the least

Yes it was in the gym parkinglot with a rambo knife 1/2 in socket and wrench. Lol I have been wanting to yank them anyways but not time or reason. I got 4.0 ext cab with rear speackers too so I will still have sound.

I wasn't wondering how to fix the latch I know I can... I just decided to pull the doors. My only question is the wiring?
