Sorry to hear about your furry problem. I have done plenty of damage repairs from chewy rodents.

The shift solenoid assembly is $430.13 retail price. It sells for a list price of $301.95. Most dealers mark up the part approx 30% above list or to $392.54. Labor to replace the solenoid is approx .7 hrs.(7 tenths) Shop rates vary between $120 and 150. Labor at the most should be $105. Time to repair the wiring harness if damaged is straight time. It depends on how quick the technician is. I would approximate the wiring repair to be 1 hour. Parts labor and straight time approx $647....Bad Mouse!!
