There are a number of oil based herbicies you can buy as a spray, that will keep rodents at bay.
One in particular I remember was made with cloves, and is totally organic. But I suppose you could make your own with jalapenos or cyanne pepper.
Oil based will stick and last.
Water based would only run off and wash away.
If you want to thin out oil for your own spray, used alcohol or mineral spirits.

Subaru 2008 forester has power to running lights but the engine will not start or turn over ?

No. Brake light has nothing to do with that. You probably have some more damaged wires somewhere. Rats mice and squirrels can do major damage to wiring harnesses and often chew them in multiple places

Check the wires. This happened in my grandmother's car. Mice chewed through her cruise control wires and f;d everything up. Check continuity between the wires from PCM to output on your wiring diagram.

Car was parked & mice chewed on wires under hood on & around engine

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.
