Default Wires?

I was taking the nasty ass carpet out of my BII and i accidentally cut 2 wires coming from behind the dash going under the shifter for the gear shifter and the 4x4. Obviously one is a ground and one is a power wire but to what? If its for the auto hubs im not worried because they are being converted but if its anything else i would appreciate any help.

probably for the 4x4 light on the dash. Hubs don't require power

light, or possible shift interlock (which keeps it from coming out of park unless you have your foot on the brake)...if it wont come out of park, then look for a small solenoif mounted on he shifter, and remove it...

or just fix the wires and forget about it (which would have taken less time then making this thread in the first place) ....
