They may be stumped because the rats didn't tell them about ALL of the wires they chewed. AND I would never offer a rat a bite of my taco! If rodents and wires are involved , it will require patience , and yes yours is not the only situation like that unfortunatly.
Thanks ziptie; I've got over 30 days of patience under my belt. I'll post resolution hopefully in a couple of days...

Please do , and hopefully for your sake it is resolved soon (and completely)!! good luck.
I don't have that info. I'll see if I can find out from the dealer, however, you would think that their knowing that would have directed them to the problem. So far codes have detected: chewed wires, fuel sensor,
and fuel injectors in that order.
