The OVP is located under the hood at the passenger side rear. It's a silver colored rectangular thing with a fuse or two visible on the top. If the last four digits of the part number are 67 45, just check the fuses. I've only seen ONE failure of a 67 45. If the last four digits are 52 45 and it says "Made in Austria" replace it. The 52 45's are known trouble-makers and I suggest replacing them even if all is well with the vehicle. It's only a matter of time before they go bad. It's easy to replace for a DIYer. Take a look under the hood and you'll see. As for exposed wiring, if the conductor material comes in contact with another exposed conductor(shorts out), components can be damaged. It all depends on what touches what. Cracked/missing insulation is reason enough to replace the harness, in my opinion. Good luck
