pages, left/right door arm/disarm switch, and others. Probably 25 diagrams.
As from above, this all got started with rodents getting into the engine
compartment. They fixed all other electrical damage successfully.
It doesn't look to me working one's way through the 25 devices is going
to be fruitful. Possibly they can check all easily with their
It seems more likely damage was done to a wire in the harness. I don't
see a diagram for one in the many categories in the Chilton DB.
Any comments on this?
I just found a pic of the engine compartment and what I believe is the
harness. It is wrapped in black. I think another examination in the day
