 Description of the problemI bought a 2017 honda ridgeline in september. The vehicle currently has few than 2000 miles. I started it up the other day and received a dashboard warning about a gas-gauge malfunction. I didn't think much of it. I got two blocks from my home and the power steering stopped working. Within a minute i received warnings about traction control and abs malfunctions. The car then stalled. The vehicle restarted and i started home and it stalled again in the middle of an intersection. It was very un-nerving. I had the car towed to babylon honda located in west babylon, ny. They called me a few days later and informed me that a rodent had eaten the wiring harness. I was looking at over $1800 in damages not covered by the warranty. A mechanic friend of mine told me about an issue with honda's involving rodents and their electrical harnesses. He sent me an article from nbc news reporting on the issue. Honda is now coating the harness with a soy based covering. It attracts rodents. My truck now has a new "edible" soy-based wiring harness. Many honda owners are complaining that their vehicle end up back at the dealership for yet another harness. This seems to put the driver's at risk of an accident or fire. Honda claims they don't have an issue. Some honda owners have had luck using an "anti-rodent tape" which wraps around the harness. Interestingly enough the tape is sold by honda an is an actual honda part. My dealer wouldn't put it on. I want to know if i'm safe in my truck. Here's a link to the nbc article. I've also attached a copy. Http://www. Nbcnews. Com/business/autos/honda-s-soy-based-wiring-covers-irresistible-rodents-lawsuit-n504746
