Sorry to hear about your collision. The sensors are mounted behind the bumper.If you look underneath you will see them and they should pop out i would start by making a visual inspection for obvious damged sensors and replace those.might have to pop them out and look closely start with ones that look like they took hardest hit. hope this helps let me know what you find and we can dig deeper if need to there is usually one or two that are obvious damaged

Hi, just had rear end collision ( I did the rear ending), in my 03 Jeep Liberty 3.7l. Passenger side bumper vs hitch. Now trans is stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear. It drives but hits 4K RPMs at 50mph.

I have seen this when the engine shifts in the engine bay. When an engine gets out of place the transmission linkage or cable is pulled short changing how the transmission will work.

B1650 code, air bag light came on after being in a rear end collison, however no one was in the passenger seat is this normal?

It could be that the rear collision sensors (or any of the other ones were damaged in the collision). They work as a system so if one is down, it may effect the others. The dealer can diagnose and reset if there isn't any damaged sensors. Before you take it to them, try to determine if the wiring harness under the seats might be unplugged or corroded. It's not uncommon after a collision.

Replacing a 2011 Edge collision sensor

First make sure the battery is disconnected to avoid blowing out your air bags. Next replace the offending collision sensor, it should be located on the radiator support, you may also need to remove the front bumper cover to gain access. If the vehicle was in a collision and that is the reason it's being replaced, then make sure you also check wiring for any damage as a short can cause the airbags to go off again unexpectedly and cause injury or damage to the vehicle.

After replacing the faulty part, clear the code(s) from the BCM.

2002 x5 rear end collision car will not crank over

My recommendation is to look for the Fuel Pump trip switch and reset it.

During a collision a sensor is able to sense impact and trip so fuel is not pump any longer.

With the car in the on but not running position see if you can hear the fuel pump.

If you can then the car has other issues.

Hope this helps

Speedometer Quit working on 2004 f250 after the front end was repaired for collision damage

It is for sure that the front collision has done the damage to all the sections mentioned and it was important that before you took delivery of the car a proper trial test run was important. It will be best to get this back and have it checked to rectify the above faults.possible cable , sensor, gear could be damged and might need replacement.

Could Rear end damage from a wreck cause my speedometer and gas gauges to stop working?

You must understand that collision stresses the ENTIRE vehicle. Just because it was hit from behind, does not mean that there is not collision damage in the front. I had a vehicle in my shop several years ago that was hit from the rear. The engine began knocking shortly after. It turned out that the collision had jarred the engine hard enough to cause the crankshaft to crack. This type of damage is extremely rare, but can happen. Trying to convince the insurance company that this was collision damage was a real trick.... On the other hand, fuel sending unit failures are quite common (without any collision) and can cause your fuel gauge to stop working.

The only way to determine if your problems are caused by the collision would be to first diagnose the problem. Only then can it be determined if the current failure is caused by collision or possibly caused by a more commonly known failure type.

I had exactly that...a rear end collision. I

That could have been caused by the accedent since the suspension is desined to flex and is all mounted in rubber bushings.If the suspension flexed enough to bind the drive shaft it would cause damage to the drive shaft, but not cause any damage to the rubber mounted suspension components.
