I dunno. We used to have a squirrel hang out under our car all of the time at our old house. Thought they were keeping clear of the neighborhood cats. Little buggers.

So a good mechanic friend and fellow wheeler helped me identified the 2 wires that are nearly totally stripped.

one is the front locker wire (ground) which I actually have a tap on near the relay too so I can actuate the lockers independently
the other is the stability control module (dynamic sensor) which goes to the center console for the abs and stability control system. Which is the wire people usually switch to control the ESP system manually.

there are other wires that have teeth marks but those are the 2 big ones.

Good thing that was the extent of damage that the fury plastic eaters did. Are you going to splice in new wires or just tape them up? I would splice in new wires in place of the stripped ones.

Since the jeep is relatively new and I only have a 200$ deductible, i am going to get insurance to pay the dealership to replace the harness.

If it wasn't for insurance I would just fix it myself but in this cause I would rather have it fixed like new so i dont have problems down the line.

^^^ Never thought of that, better safe than sorry and it will also give a chance to find more damage, if any, with the harness out. Good luck.

Gonna dig out my policy tonite to make sure I'm covered against roving bands of mentally disturbed rodents - my luck they would call it an act of riot and refuse coverage...

Revenge....

I would be concerned if it happened once it may happen again. I live in an area that was once a citrus grove (think lots of fruit trees). So the rats and squirrels have a field day here. The best tool I have found to keep them under control is a variation on Mr. Bishop's idea. I have several of these and just bait them with peanut butter. Works great on squirrels, rats, and mice. Also, safe for dogs, cats. Remember Revenge is sweet!

I think I see the problem...

Your squirrels learned how to read and want to show you what evil REALLY means...
