i'm doing my best to spell everything out before i start cutting wires
Not commenting on the electrical side...

This is a nice option for tapping into existing wiring. The continuity of the wire remains unbroken and the voltage / current is branched to a new location.

Ensure the splice is sealed from moisture ingress. This is important!

Right Splice Leaves Factory Wiring Unbroken.

A IDC crimp splice is another option. It just leaves two small slits in the insulation.
