Apparently, auto manufacturers have gone to using soy instead of plastic in their wiring...it's cheaper (for them!)
Toyota is definitely an offender...my 2005 4Runner was ravaged by a squirrel who built a nest in the engine compartment at a cost of $1200. Fortunately she was electrocuted in the process. For a long time after I would see her babies waiting in my front yard for the car to come home!
Today I took my 2007 4Runner to the dealership because all of my idiot lights were on. Squirrels had chewed-up the wiring. I was told that we would start with $300 and go from there. Toyota needs to pay for this, the slimy, slimy cheats!
