Dont't know why, but they love chewing wires...lucky its not in the walls of your house!!! (bright side to everything!!

Yes. Specially if you live near the countryside. It's actually very common. Mice will make nests inside the engines because it's warm there, and they will destroy all wiring and rubber tubes.

Egr temp sensor nr1 high voltage, 2013 gmc 6.6 diesel, have had recent problems with rodents chewing on wiring. Suggestions ?

You need to pull the harness up high enough to look at it. They probably chewed right thru the supply voltage wire to the EGR sensor. Since it is saying high voltage the ECM is OK, it is doing what its supposed to. The ECM isn't seeing a voltage drop because with a open circuit there is no place for the voltage to go. Id look in the valley area between the heads, they love to nest in this area for warmth.

4 wheel light service light

It is very hard to say without performing a visual inspection, a function test, and/or scanning your transfer case controller for possible fault codes (If the "Service 4 Wheel Drive" light is on, I guarantee there will be fault codes). It could be anything from a stuck front axle actuator to to a corroded transfer case shift motor, a cracked or broken vacuum hose, or wiring harnesses that have been chewed-up by rodents.

Rodents chewed the wires leading from the harness side of the connector for the front o2 sensor on my 2007 hyundai sonata. I cant seem to obtain the correct order of the wires as the dealer says this is...

Rataway fragrance stops odors caused
by rats, mice, squirrels, etc... rataway_bottle.jpg
Makes one gallon when mixed
and protects the surface of areas used for nesting.

Rodents and other animals mark territory (your car, house, etc.) with their scent. Animals are attracted by this scent. Rataway fragrance gets rid of the scent. No lingering scent, no more attraction.

Rataway fragrance protects car engines, wiring, boats, motorhomes, machinery, heavy equipment, etc. when sprayed to protect the surfaces

Rataway fragrance is not a pepper spray.

If you are looking for an effective, natural control for odors, Rataway fragrance is it.

Again... Rataway fragrance can be used around children, pets, and service personnel.

What is Rataway Fragrance?Rataway fragrance is a spray that is very offensive to wild animals such as rats, mice, squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, dogs, cats, horses, skunks, and monkeys. Rataway fragrance is not offensive to humans.

Under warranty

I have seen the damage that one squirrel has done on a Dodge van. Unfortunately all of the injector wires needed to be respliced. It happens more often than you think. I also knew of a rat that chewed through a serpentine belt on a 5.0 liter Mustang. The owner started the car and chewed the heck out of that rat. True story. What a mess he made.
