Default Mice Ate my PT!! Help

Ok guys I need some help. I have a 2007 PT Cruiser Touring with the mild Turbo. I went out this morning when my wife said her blinker was not working and after opening the hood... I found this.
http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/galler...0/ppuser/34859

A mouse has enjoyed himself at my expense. not here is my question. What is this plug for. it looks like it goes under the turbo cover on the passenger side. Unfortunately I am not near the car at the moment to get a better pic, but I think there is enough wire to just replace the plug if that is possible.

Any advice would be great.

Ok.. SO I did something so that I can see the picture but no one else can..? so I put it in my gallery and added a link. I don't usually post pics and don't remember if I have a photobucket.

Edit... but my signature pic keeps showing up for some reason

quicksilverdon... thanks, but looks like it is the MAP Sensor. your suggestion led me to a picture that showed it. Does anyone know if you can just get a new plug or would the entire harness need to be swapped?

It's the same plug on my '05 turbo lite...
If you are good at soldering, fix what you have.
OR - visit a junkyard and clip connector with lots of slack off a junker - and solder it in to replace the mouse food.
Non-turbos (N/A) MAY have identical connector - take a picture on your phone when you visit junkyard.

I know it sounds crazy, but I had this happen twice on my Honda in 1 month. The Mechanic told me to try rubbing Irish Springs bar soap on the wiring harnesses and everywhere the mice showed signs.
I did it and they never bothered that car again, 5 years and no problems. I think I'll be putting it on all the cars when I get this fixed.
