    yesterday we found mice damage to wiring in one of our vehicles .... recommendations from anyone who has found a product that works well in repelling mice in vehicles

    Assuming it was in the engine compartment, leave the hood open at least 3 inches if the vehicle is not going to be driven for a while.
    I tried all kinds of curers, and that worked the best for me.

    Honda actually makes a "Mousetape" to wrap the wires in.
