A while back I had thrown a code for Ignition Control Module, started up fine every time, never ran rough, so I was doing some searching on google and found that it might be due to a chewed or bad wire somewhere. well today I pulled off the top of the engine cover to find this.. I can't really tell if it looks chewed up or burnt.
was hoping to get some answers on that as well as cost wise what i'd be looking at to replace that section..

Yea, its chewed, not burnt. If it burnt then little pieces of insulation wouldnt have ended up at the top of the pic.
If it burnt the stuff would have just melted together. Also looks like little bite marks around the area.
That really sucks but I dont think the harness would be expensive to replace.
Is there a part number anywhere on it?
yeah i was just going to see if a shop would just splice in a new section, if not, i'll do it myself. Not going to pay for a whole new harness if it's not needed. Thanks and i'll let you know how this goes lol..
Go to a junkyard and cut the connector with as much wiring as you can, or order a new one on rockauto.com but beware replacement connectors are not cheap! Then just solder it in and either shrink wrap the wires or cover well in electrical tape.
The LAST thing I would do is replace the engine harness, used ones are under $100, a new one is $1,000, and its a TON of work and a complete crapshoot when it comes to reliability.
