I was rear ended from behind recently. The impact left a hole in my bumper as well as took out a chunk of the absorber material from beneath my bumper. Of course there was other physical damage as well.
Currently dealing with insurance right now which has noted that my Exhaust System - Muffler & Pipe , Rear bumper, Rear lamps & Rear Body/Floor all need to be replaced.
My car which has had NO issues prior to the accident stopped working shortly after the fact. My battery has been checked and that is fine. There was a burnt scent under my hood, of which a wire near the battery was noticed that was charred. The wire was hotter than it should have been as well. The voltage coming off the battery was also higher than it should have been.
Dealing with insurance and trying to prove that it is related to the accident is currently where i’m at with things. My car is set to be sent off to a mechanic to figure out the problem. As long as the problem is related to the accident im covered, and if its not then i’ll have to pay.
Has anyone dealt with this or know what the issue may be ?
