Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
Hit deer dead center. The truck run down the road a few miles, temp gauge never showed any problems with getting hot, and wasn't making any funny noises. steam was coming out of the punctured radiator. Then it just shut down, and would not restart. Towed home, replaced radiator, and ac condenser, and still won't start, is there something that needs to be reset. The radiator, and ac condenser were the only damage, outside the grill, and bumper. Air bags did not deploy. A point in the right direction would be very beneficial. Thanks for all your help. :)

COULD BE A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS. HAVE YOU TRIED TO SWAP THE A/C RELAY FOR ANOTHER? IT COULD BE A BAD ACCUMULATOR SWITCH OR A CLOGGED ORIFICE TUBE, OR A DEFECTIVE LOW PRESSURE CUT-OFF SWITCH. TOO MANY TO LIST. TRY THE RELAY AND LET ME KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND HONEST RATING IN ADVANCE.

preform a pressurized collant flush , take it to a raidior shop to have it done , they will clean and blow out all blockages that might cause your car to over heat. also check to make sure you dont have air pockets in your anit freeze, if you do you need to bleed the system out after you have it flushed , your car should have a blead valve to let out the axcess air ,if not drive it down the road with the cooaint overflow cap off , not the radiator but you need to flush out the system first , add new anti freeze then bleed out all air pockets, hope this helps

Sounds like the thermostat is trying to stick,and is causing the engine to over heat,therefore condenser is not cooling the freon down enough to cool.Have the thermostat changed and the cooling system bled out,this is most likely the cause.

FixInfax is right except I'll add a few add ons to his statement. Number one. If the airbag deployed you'll have crash data saved in the airbag module. Anytime an airbag is deployed and data is stored you must replace the airbag module as well and the new one must be coded by Volkswagen. Number 2 as a technician of vw I would not erase or repair any airbag faults previously repaired by someone else because we cannot be sure what parts were installed or if they were well installed. If someone came to me and said we replace the module and the airbags can you code the module alone my answer would be NO, because too many safety aspects ride on it. Imagine someone did this for a client and a day later they were fatelly injured because of a crash or deployment and the last person to touch the system was a vw tech. It is too risk for the tech to do so, so when an airbag is replaced it should be only done by the qualified tech who will do the whole job.
