I pulled the carpets out and cleaned them, then hit them with stain remover (resolve), then power washed them with a mixture of laundry soap and bleach, THEN hit the pee area with a vinegar/water solution.

Now I have very clean, mousy smelling carpet The vinegar works great on dog messes, but didn't even touch the mouse stuff.

What works? I have some Odo-ban enzyme stuff. Will that work?

If vinegar doesnt maybe not much. New carpet?

Might as well try that odo ban stuff. But consider cost of new carpet about $125 I think..

They also offer urine eliminator at places like PetSmart that actually kill the enzymes in urine. That might be worth looking into.

My son worked for a detailer this summer and alerted me to a trick they use for stain and smell removal from carpet and seats. They use an old style paint gun up close with an all purpose cleaner/degreaser and water mixture to power blast the materiel. (about 90 psi thru the gun) and then they shop vacuum dry. He did a heavily stained and heavily smoked in car for a neighbor (they got it from a estate sale) and it got cleaner than any other method I've ever seen or smelled!

If you still have the carpet out of the car, get some Fabuloso and wash the carpet with a good strong solution. I recommended it to dotrenrew and his results were good. It leaves a long lasting Lavendar smell.

Get a moose to pee on them. Probably solves the mouse pee problem but creates another one.

Doused it with Odo-ban last night. If that doesn't work, I'll be looking for a moose.

A stronger odor does not eliminate another odor....it just makes it to where you don't notice it. This is the problem with most air fresheners...they don't get rid of the smell, they just cover it with a "more pleasant" smell. A cigar smoker will not smell the residue from a cigar. If I don't acknowledge the smell, then it isn't going to do anything to cover up an unpleasant smell.

Nuke it from space, it's the only way to be sure.

Until you pull the carpet out and clean the both sides of the carpet and the floor pan area the smell will keep coming back.
Then after the odo-ban let it sit in the sun for a day or two the uv usually will kill off anything you missed.

That's the plan. They have been out for months and I have thoroughly cleaned them and put them in the sun to dry. The Odo-ban seems to have worked, so I'm going to hit them with that again and leave them out in the sun all weekend. I'm also replacing ALL of the padding, scouring and painting the interior metal and putting down some Dynamat like material.

I have also discovered they have been in the area ahead of the shifter. Going to clean all of the interior including the duct work and am replacing and / or thoroughly cleaning everything.

A little late to the party but hydrogen peroxide kills organic matter - do a test on it first to make sure it doesn't bleed the color (and all the other usual warnings).
