Missing cable interior lights

Hi beemajas.

I'm new here and this is my first post.
I got the same problem that you, same lights, same missing cable.
You solve it? Any advice?
If you found a way to make it work, please send me anything... a diagram, photos or else. If not, I will write you as soon I find a solution.
