Yes, the wiring harness can be replaced, but it's not a quick job. Since the connector is getting hot, there has to be something shorting in the connector itself. Check to see if any of the pins are bent, pushed out of position. Also, make sure they are all clean so they make a good connection. If they all look good, take the covering off the wiring harness to it and look for bare wires or damaged wires. NOTE: I have had many experiences where the wires look good but are damaged or broken inside. Once you get the covering off the wiring, do a visual inspection. If everything looks good, then move one wire at a time until it starts for you. That way you can identify which wire/s are the issue.
Take your time. You'll get it.
Let me know what you find.
