It cost me exactly ZERO rupees to replace the wire. And I don't know if the whole harness got replaced.

The truth is that I am not that much of a gear head. So I didn't bother to inquire.

My MO is that I buy a used car with the cash I have in hand and use my trusted mechanic to solve my problems. I don't like dealing with manufacturers' service centres as I typically crave a more personal touch in my dealings. My mechanic gives me that comfort level. He picks up my car, returns it and only charges me if there is something significant in terms of expense.

In this case, he told me that he replaced "the rat chewed wires". I took it at face value as he charged me nothing. And as it is, it was one more thing that we were trying in our quest to solve this long running issue.

In the end, the action that we took worked and my car jerks no more. That's all I could ask for.

And johnruben, you deserve some sort of prize for nailing it. Same cause and same consequence. After I replaced the rat-chewed wires, I waited a full 2 months to accept that we had gotten to the bottom of it.

Thanks a bunch.
Glad to hear your issue is resolved, sorry I had busy tight schedule for the past couple of months and couldn't login to check any messages.

There is a thread to educate you to protect your car from rats, go through it, wish you all the best.
