Car Rodent Damage Repair in Valley Springs, CA.

engine repair

Is your car suffering intermittent electrical problems because rodents chewed on the electrical wires? Various critters have always been a problem when it comes to electrical wiring in cars, but recently the problem was compounded by the COVID pandemic and - believe it or not - many car manufacturers. Fortunately, Toole’s Garage in Valley Springs offers car rodent damage remediation, including wiring harness repair.

When vehicles remain unused for months, as happened recently due to Covid shutdowns, it’s a perfect opportunity for various critters to make a home inside your vehicle – it’s warm, dry, and peaceful.

Mice and rats have always liked to chew on electrical wiring, but these days you can add squirrels and rabbits (yes, rabbits) to the mix. Within the last few years many leading car manufacturers replaced traditional petroleum-based wiring insulation with soy-based insulation. While the idea was to make cars more environmentally friendly, automobiles with the new insulation also turned out to be rodent friendly - rodents love the taste of the new insulation.

At Toole's Garage in Valley Springs we can remedy rodent damage, fix wiring harness and other electrical problems caused by rodents, and get your automobile cleaned up ready for the road again. Our technicians use cutting-edge digital diagnostic tools to locate electrical shorts, voltage drops, and many other problems created by vermin feasting on the insides of your car.

Once the electrical system is restored, we will repair any other damage to the interior of the car, get it cleaned up, get rid of any leftover rodent fragrance, and have your car ready for use again.
