I have a fender jazz v5 and the wires connecting the battery to the pickups themselves has been compromised, whats the best way to fix this? as of now the bass cannot be used at all
If the wires are frayed and/or broken the need to be soldered back together or replaced. If you're not sure of how to do it, or uncomfortable doing it yourself, then take it to a tech or a shop. It should be a quick and relatively inexpensive fix.
