I know this kind of isn’t DIY but maybe you guys could help me. So, my 3800 V6 monte carlo has been sitting since September and finally got it out yesterday. Since the battery has long been dead it needed a jump so I popped the hood and I found chewed acorns all over the engine bay and deep in the crevices of the supercharger and deep in the motor. do you guys have any suggestions to keep squirrels out of the engine bay? Also now the traction control is off and won’t turn back on, in the “message center” it says to service the traction control system. Also the abs light is on. Is it possible that the squirrels chewed some wires to make it go haywire? Or is it just a couple of corroded sensors? Sorry I didn’t post this elsewhere because there is no 3800 community. Thanks!
