Question about Cars & Trucks
4 days ago i was rear ended and my bumper was torn off and the cushion (plastic) was almost destroyed. Now the parking brake light came on and so did the service engine light. Tested the parking brake and it works fine. The speedometer dosent work either but the rpm gauge works fine.....overall the car runs fine. can I still drive the car until I can have an estimate done on the damage from the accident and not damage the car...is the computer damaged?
The facts you have given you have not stated what Vehicle this is is the most Important thing/
However as you state the parts are not working the answer is yes the computer needs reprogramming so you should get it to the repair company they can reset your computer & inform you if it is still safe to drive. Best Wishes. Malcolm Campbell

You shouldn't have to worry about damaging anything, although the ride quality may not be great. You can safely drive it to the dealer to have them check it out.

SOURCE: Brake lights won't go off
learned to trouble shoot this in school, it might be that your lights and or switch are backwards, that was usually the case we discovered to be the culprit, and be sure you have the right bulbs and not some random generic compatible with these model cars, those bulbs will not be compatible with the current going thru them, if this does not help, you might want to try to reinstall the original components to back track your work, unfortunetlly electronics on cars is very time consuming as we learned in class.....hope this works or helps you...shia

think you have knocked out the safety switch and it needs resetting to start vehicle,Dont know where this is on this vehicle though but it could be in the boot or under the bonnet but some vehicles have them behind the centre pillar cover or in the front footwell,it should be a smallish square thing with a red rubber cover ,just push the rubber cover down and it should click back on

I disagree with main dealer,YOU DO have a trickle surge,who ever did the repair should have checked your wiring loom from contacted copllision area back to your indicator clusters even your interior boot light ( normally the culprit ) have someone take both leads off battery,connect a meter to either treminal and remove each individual fuse,that will diagnose the problem area. good luck col leeds
