Hi,my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to try to assist you with this.I may need more information in some cases to help with answering your question.

If the engine computer (ME) was replaced at all this has to be coded/programmed to your model here in order to work properly.This will cause this issue here.If this was not replaced check for any shorted or damaged wiring on this model in the area of the accident and repair any issues found.If this is all checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue from here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
