Question about 2000 Toyota Celica

Car won't start after accident

I was involved in an accident the other day where I was rear-ended. I was able to drive my car off of the highway and then had it towed due to major damage to the rear end. The car then sat in tow storage for about a week. I now can't get it to start. I tried re-charging the battery and that was not the issue. Is there an emergency engine shut off that happens in the event of an accident? How do I get it to start again?

    It's not just that it doesn't turn on... no lights come on either (like the battery is dead... but it isn't)

I think it certainly could. Don't let the insurance company off the hook! Get it to a shop for a written verification of the problem, then go after the ins. company.

not go for a ride with them, even before you discovered your
