Has this vehicle been in a accident ??

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was hit on the driver's side rear quarter panel. coincidentally the brake light on that side seems to not be working either, but yes the outside temp gauge and the ac compressor will not turn on after the collision

No, none to the front end, I pulled the front bumper cover off completely and removed both headlights and there was no damage at all.
