Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Can you share a photo of where the wires were chewed up so I can see. Then I can instruct on how you want to go about correcting this.

Let me know

I have uploaded two photos of the wire and what it is connected to.
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

ouch.. Ok. Thank you for your pictures. That helps me to give you direction on what you need to do.

So what I would do for this situation is to cut the wires and solder in new wires. Example. That blue wire that is broken. I would cut it back past the chewed up part. then stripe out a section and get another wire and make a good length wire for the amount of wire you are going to cut out and stripe out the ends and solder the wire ends together to make a good connection and then electrical tape that solder connection so nothing touches it. After you have repaired all 3 wires, I would then wrap them all keeping them all together.

Do you have any more questions on this?

That sensor on the Transmission. That looks like the crank sensor which is a major input signal.
