Wires under hood chewed by rats


Don't know what you need

Open up the wire harness enough to be able to make a repair

You slide heat shrink tubing over the wire,add wire, any color
but the same wire size or gauge & solder them & then heat shrink

If only the plastic is chewed & no copper wire ,then seal with clear
nail polish & tape real tight with 3M hi temp electrical tape,home
depot has that
Then use the stretchy rubber tape to cover all repaired wires,
unless you like you heat shrink job.

You just match the wire colors & strips that isn't the question

Have the battery disconnected

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

I jhave a 1999 ford taurus and the check engine light is on and the only code is for the oxygen sensor and i already replaced the sensor and the problem has gotten worse. The wires the oxygen sensor plugs...


I would assume there is a reason the wires are chewed up

You need to replace or repair the wire situtation,but not at
the cost of $1000.00

You replace the wire damage one wire at a time,by soldering
& heat shrinking them

If you depend on a repair shop, rather then doing all your own
work your in big trouble. Shops don't like that kind of work &
don't perform it well as a result. Not to offend those that do good
work, but it isn't standard repair shop type work & a dealer is
out of the question. Their $1000.00 parts swappers

TORO 20074A Starter not working. Battery is fully charged. Nothing happens when you turn key, I've had it more than a year so I know what it should do.


OK seems to me you have a connection problem. This doesn't always mean that a connection where two wires plug together is bad. It could be a problem as simple as a mouse chewing thru a wire.
Take your time and check the wire or wires that go from your battery down to the starter.You may very quickly find your problem. A bad contact, a broken wire, a disconnected wire, or that bad little mouse, which will lead you to the purchase of a mouse trap before he causes you any additional headaches. GOOD LUCK.

Dog chewed cord on bissell model 6579-2 how do I replace it?


You can cut the bad section of wire out of the cord, cut the insulation on the cord to get to the wires. Match your colors, strip the insulation from the individual wires and twist together. Wrap each wire with electrical tape (making sure no wire is exposed, can be a fire hazard), then wrap the cord with electrical tape. The cord will be a little shorter, but should work fine.

My mouse has a cursor but the cursor won't move when & where I want it to. Have switched to a different mouse & it does the same thing. What is wrong?


One thing you can try is you are currently using a PS/2 mouse (one with pins and whatnot), try a USB mouse. If that doesn't work then you know there's something wrong with your Operating system. If it does, then there's something wrong with the PS/2 mouse port

Mouse will not work when plugged in.


What kind of mouse is it? If it has a round plug, then it's a PS/2 mouse, if a rectangular one than it's USB.

Either way, I suggest getting a new mouse. Get a laser mouse instead of a mouse with a ball in it. They last much longer. I've been buying Logitech brand mice for years and find them to be reliable.

For example, at Staples you can probably pick up a basic, wired, USB Logitech mouse for under $30, maybe less than $20. I recommend wired over wireless, wireless ones burn up batteries quickly.

Also, I've found that if you have a round PS/2 plug for a mouse instead of USB, many of the Logitech mice come with a little green adapter in the package that will let you plug the USB mouse into a round PS/2 port.

I know this is a dumb solution, but mice are so inexpensive these days that messing around with an older mouse simply isn't worth the effort.

Re: wireless mouse and keyboard; mouse not detected


I bought the same combo from a parts house. The guy told me the mouse didn't work but didn't know why. I had the same problem. When I inspected the mouse closely, I found that the connect button on the bottom of the mouse had stuck underneath the housing...basically in the "connect position". When I freed it, the mouse worked and still works just fine. Hope this helps
