Possums are omnivores and scavengers so will eat just about anything. Try some dog food or cat food.

Sounds like the car hasn't been used in a long time. And when it was parked no one did any storage steps like sealing off different areas and placing insect and rodent deterants in and around the car

Moth balls. All rodents hate the smell of them. Just put them somewhere that won't get wet when it rains.

The emission light came on our 2010 Honda Odyssey with 2500 miles. Brought in to dealer who told us a RAT!?! chewed the line so the repair would not be under warranty. I smell a rat & it's not the one they say chewed my wire! What do you think?

Unfortunately, there have been lots of cases of rodents chewing on car wiring. In the last five years or so, wire manufacturers have used soy beans as an ingredient in the insulation coating on automobile wiring,and it seems it is tasty to our small friends. Depending on where you park your car , will make you succeptible to it happening again. The Mom of a friend of mine had $1000 worth of damage to her car wiring, as some chipmunks had a field day with her newer car. She ended up placing some moth balls around where her car was parked, to keep the critters away. If you have wildlife near your car, look out!
