I'm going to fit a Ring doorbell, so need to extend the doorbell button cable that has previously been cut. There isn't much currently available...

I have tried pulling it to see if it will extend a bit, but it won't.

What's the best solution please?

surely you can get to the cable on the inside, and joint a new bit on, and poke the new wire through?

was it cut by a vandal?

You could try making a hole somewhere else where you think the cable may run, to gain a SENSIBLE amount of slack cable to joint to.

Good luck with trying to solder onto that little bit of cable...
