Q: Car accident damage

asked by on

My car was in an accident, and now it won't start. Also, the front end of the driver's side is badly damaged.

I will recommend you consult the assistance of a collision center as there may be extensive damage requiring more than simple parts replacement. You can also have an inspection of the starting system from a certified technician from YourMechanic. They will be able to come to your home or office to look over your vehicle to determine why it is not starting.
