You could ask this question on a KIA forum, another Spectra owner might be able to help you out with photos of their car. You can also visit a local auto salvage yard that has a Spectra on it's lot, then you can see in person the wire harness and may even be able to grab parts you might need. Electrical repairs are among the harder things for a DIYer to do, it can take a lot of know how, experience, and tools to make an effective repair. But I would definitely start by asking on a dedicated KIA forum for pics.
