SOURCE: noise from blower fan from mice nest

You should be able to remove just the fan blower from under the passenger side dash and clean out the housing and the blower wheel

Nothing you can do but get rid of the mice. This is a very common problem and shops make good money off it. If you prevent then from getting into the vents then they will nest on the engine and eat up other electrical parts.

Check other end from air cleaner duct, where it hooks to the throttle body, some thing could have gotten stuck in there, holding the flap open some what making it idle high.

SOURCE: car was parked & mice chewed on wires under

That is not good. They will need to be replaced of course. The only problem is replacing them. It is hard to tell what all they chewed up. It could be more then what is shown.

need to kill the mice or find a better place to park. even if you block this entrance they will not stop. I have seen whole electrical systems, vaccum sysyems. destroyed by mice. interior ect. get some poison and traps bated with chocolate. if you don't want to kill them find some traps and relocate them to a far away feild. if they are anywhere near your vehicle they will chew on anything and everything they can.

Check engine for knock sensor lighting up it says short/low bank 1

Check the wiring harnesses for bare or brittle spots. If none are found replace the spark plugs, all of them and spark plug wires. I know these are still fairly new but that is the next step. If you have over 60,000 miles on the vehicle it could be an issue with the timing chain but my experience tells me replace the crank Position sensor first if none of the other steps yield any results. Because these vehicles come with the power train warranties they do you can't really trust the Dealer Mechanics because they will do anything they can to prolong this to get the vehicle out of warranty.

How do I keep rodents from eating the wires on my vehicles or from nesting in the engine compartment

Just read an article in Brake & Front End, (a professional
trade publication ) in the last hour ,about mice eating
the cop ignition wires on 1 coil & going under intake &
eating the knock sensor wires ,on a 2002 Lexus

They didn't say how to stop that

Usually they get into the ducting & you get no air to the
motor, after they bring in their nesting materials & food

Take it to a repair shop and have them put up on a lift, have them check the fire wall that's where the wire's and hoses go through the inside of the van to make sure it's all seal, also have them check under the van to make sure that all the rubber plugs are ok. Goodluck

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.

According to service people my wiring chewed by rodent is it possible

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.
