Hi,
Its indeed a complicated problem especially if the parking place is exposed to rats.However we have following suggestions to make.
1.Ensure water drain holes provided to the body are sealed.
2.Cover the air filter when vehicle is not inuse.
3.The electricians can find out the exact place of rat entry.As lot of holes are made in engine compartment for wiring purpose, there are chances rats enter into dashboard and spoil wiring.
4.Best of the solution lies in making the parking place free of rodents by blocking rat entry places to the parking area.It can be done unless vehicle is parked
outside.

Please change your parking place. Even if it means going some distance away. Also make sure your immediate environment is clean. Try to keep pieces of "roban" or "ratkill" underneath the car. These are tempting titbits which they find hard to resist. It is a slow poison but it works. Complain to the local municipality about the rats in the first place. They will despatch rat killers.

Hello the best way to prevent rats enter into your car is use the Rat preventives spray. This is available online

This will prevent entering rat into your car,

Alternatively use the tobacco sticks available in small shops, just place them at entry points, but tobacco one might cause some issue while you drive i'm not sure about it but spray is best option.
