Son just got rear ended in his 2014 Honda Accord, wont start now. Only back bumper damage. He's out of town on the side of the road if anyone can help us figure out what might be wrong. Thanks

cant be that bad a hit if air bag did not deploy

fuel system may have shut down

if the engine light is on when it cranks over
there will be fault codes in the computer

disconnect both battery terminals wait a bit reconnect
this will reset the engine computer and car should start up

if still no start will be a tow

2001 Passat check engine light flashing and car shuts off will not start

The first step is to plug in an OBD-2 scanner to read exactly what the fault code is, that is setting off the check engine light (CEL). If you are in the USA, most auto parts stores like AutoZone, Oreillys, or Advance Auto Parts have these OBD-2 scanners and will check for vehicle fault codes at no cost (free).
Since the problem seems to arise when the check engine light comes on, it is likely the code will show the exact malfunctioning part, or an area to focus on.
Without knowing the exact error/fault code, it's impossible to say what the exact problem is, that's causing the car's shutdown.

Today my battery light in the dash come on and for a Little bit when u idle the engine up the light would go off but when idle dwn it come back on i cleaned the batterg terminals ck the water in battery...

You've got a bad alternator. At idle it was not charging but at higher speeds it was still able to charge some. It blew a diode.
Your battery died because it was not being charged.
You should have 12.5 volts on a charged battery with the engine not running. It should not drop below maybe 10volts when cranking and should read around 14volts when running if your alternator is working.

I drove with my son the other day when my service engine light came on and my truck lost power (95 Z71) . we made it home and the light went of. we replaced plugs and wires but the truck still barely runs...

Read the check engine error code for a place to start (large auto parts stores will have a scanner for use at their location, and they may even scan the code for you and tell you what it means). Good luck.

My son just purchased a 2006 GMC Envoy and Check Engine Light kept going on. Dealer said it is due to Secondary Injection Pump (Code P0410),which my son paid them to replace. Again, Check Engine Light...

Until yesterday, I have never had a serious mechanical issues with my 2006 Envoy Denali, which only has +/-60K Miles (under extended 100K Mile warranty).

Yesterday, however, while taking an interstate on-ramp (I think I hit 40 MPH tops?), my 5.3L V-8 engine shut down while in use. I immediately pulled over, as my power steering went out when the vehicle shut off, and coasted to a stop on the shoulder.

My vehicle would not restart... the dealership took a look at it this morning, and their preliminary findings are that the engine threw a rod, there's metal shavings, and some liquid (water?) in the engine.

I'm still awaiting their full estimate of the damage.

Security light flashing and car won't start now

does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

White and gray smoke coming out back and underneath 1995 Chevy Bl

Too late to check now... you've got a blown head gasket. When the gauge starts to give you any indication that something's not right you must shut it down or this kind of thing happens. Could have started as a bad water pump, hose etc. With low coolant from that (or anything else) continued operation will kill the whole thing!...Sorry!!
