hello, it's hard for me to tell what exactly the problem is since as you said it was in a frontal collision, the ac/dc inverter charges the main battery back up, it may have been damaged in the accident, there is coolant circulating in it from the electric pump. Can you upload a good picture of the accident damage with the hood open?Has a professional either body repair or mechanic looked at this yet?
