It's been almost a year since I got in my Tundra, and it wouldn't turn over. It got towed to Toyota dealer/shop, and I got a call that the wiring harness was chewed through. $3000+ for new harness and 2 weeks without my truck. Insurance covered it, but it still was a pain. I keep these scented bags under the hood that I got from a local Kabota dealer for tractor cabs and such. Has anyone else had this problem? What was the solution? Apparently, the coating on the wires is soy-based, so the squirrels come in for the warmth and stay for the wires.

Unfortunately this has become a very common problem on most new vehicles. The soy based insulation is "ECO friendly" so most manufacturers are now using it and the critters love it.

I heard a story about a fellow with a motor home that suffered the same fate at the jaws of mice and rats.
His solution was to install an electrified fence around his rig.
He found all sorts of dead critters ~ everything from snakes to field mice.
