mice attacked my Rhino?

Mice chewed some wires in my battery compartment. The rhino will now turn over (only when the brake pedal is depressed) but won't fire. Can I replace these wires myself or do I have to take it in to the shop. Does anyone have any experience in this matter? Thanks

if it is in gear, you have to push the brake in to get it to tune over. You probably know that sorry for the obvious. check your lights and dash lights see if they work. If the Rhino has been sitting for a while it might just take a little cranking to get the gas going to the engine. carb or EFL which ever you have.

BTW welcome to the site!!!!! Some of our more experienced members will be along shortly to help, if that wiring diagram doesn't do it.

Thanks for the replies. This site is great, I didn't expect such rapid replies. I use my Rhino daily, Hapa, so the problem is almost certainly these chewed wires I wouldn't be surprised if someone here has had the same problem.

2005 660. I just took another look at the damage and it looks like a bundle of little wires that maybe I can replace myself. Hopefully quick and easy, life's difficult without a Rhino.

I have a jet skit in az that this happened too. They must not like the stock wiring though because they only nibbled on it. They completly stripped the after market wiring to the copper that was in there though. Just splice them one by one unless there are too many. They sell the harness as well.

I meant more experienced than me. I also gave you props for the wiring diagram, just never met anyone that can read those things. lol

I was hoping someone would have a better idea than turning him loose with the wiring diagram. Like similar experience hence more experience. I will always direct people to you for picture experience! lol
