Are you referring to the wires from condensate pump(low voltage)? If so all we want to do is break the Y wire going to outdoor unit.So one side of pump will go to Y from thermostat and the other side will go to outdoor unit.

No that's not what I'm asking. I have an older Trane gas furnace and AC unit that run off the same blower. While replacing the pump and cleaning some of the spliced wires came loose. I believe they were all spliced together I'd like to know if that is the appropriate way and if so do I include the hot and nutural from each or just one and do I need to include the ground. I know this wasn't done correctly from the start. I apologize for not making my question clear. I can send a pic of you need. Thanks.
