    sorry, but you didn't answer the question. i know not to drive it, i can't, it will not start at all. the engine turns, but that's it. car has a damage radiator, two broken fans, and a bent radiator support bracket. i'm trying to start the car, just to make sure that it will start, after i replace the damaged items. again, it was running fine until she hit the deer, she stopped right after she hit it, and the car turned off. battery is good, turn over, not start. is the a cut off switch, or something that is keeping it from starting. yes, it has gas. could it have thrown the timing off, i haven't found any broken wire, lines or anything. i'm really lost at this one. any ideas? thanks in advance.

  • ROY A RODRIGUEZ Nov 15, 2010

    thnaks, but none of the information helped, i just take it to the shop in the morning, and see what they find. once, again, thanks. however, i did fix the damage area, r/r the radiator, 2 fans, 2 headlight and 2 turn single, in addition to the front panel. and it still won't start. the engine turns, has gas, has fire, you know it will be something dumb.

Why is my heater on the passenger side is blowing out cold air no matter what?


hello there,I presume when you hit the deer and he hit your hood the impact enough could have been sufficient to knock a part loose or out or cause damage to some underlying part even though it did not seem as big of a deal to you. Although we can't totally focus on the deer as the corporate and should not really focus much on the cause because it's been like that for such a long time, the car could have been damaged by anything two years ago not necessarily the deer. In any event you should take your vehicle to a mechanic, there will not be much that you can do to remedy this issue.
But if you insist on having some type of solution that you could employ I would start with checking the fuse box making sure that no fuses are lose or damage or blown in making sure that relays are tightly fit it in thier receptacles you can also look under your hood for obviously damaged parts you can also search online to see where the components that control the passenger side of the air conditioner or heater unit is located and try to observe damage to that area or those parts.

Good luck and thanks

I hit a deer this morning and manage to bust somthing that drained all my oil. what could be broken?


The deer probably damaged your oil filter, which is usually located in the front part of the engine, just behind the radiator. Good luck with that.

Both fan not working after hit by a deer(fan makes contact with radiator)


Yes,replace the fan clutch,don't want to get it all back together and not work cause you didn't replace fan clutch.Your water pump may have been damaged also,I hit a deer and did major damage too,had to replace water pump,the fan is connected to it.

I was in a minor fender bender ( bumped the car in front of me and did little cosmotic damage.) After that my check engine light came on. The code is P1491 Manufacturer Control Axillary Emissions...


The DTC (Data Trouble Code) P1491 for Chrysler-Jeep is for the Radiator Fan Control Relay Circuit, and the radiator fan control relay is located between the radiator and the AC condenser, and there is the possibility that a collision could have damaged the radiator control relay or the wiring. Here is an image of a chrysler radiator control relay to help assist you.
