In limp mode....again

I'm sick of my Patriot, this will be the 3rd repair to the wiring harness because of corroded wiring.
1st time the brake lights went out
2nd time went into limp mode and it had to be towed to the dealer
3rd time I drove it up the road to the mechanic in limp mode going a blistering 10mph.

Of course all 3 were out of warranty, this coupled with the clunking suspension has me ready to drive it into the lake.

07, I should note all 3 repairs have been in the same harnesses in the left front fender.
