I hit a tree.... :(

Backed into a tree yesterday... wasn't paying attention here behind the house. Popped it pretty good. Body shop says $4000... Anyway, now I'm getting warning messages.

1. Trailer/tow... makes since, seeing as how I smacked the bumper pretty good on that side where the connector is. But the wiring and connector look fine so... not sure whats up. It didn't do it this morning on the ride to work. Only on the ride home.

2. Pre-Collision system malfunction... not sure here either since that's on the front, and, I Backed into the tree. ???

3. Drive-Start malfunction... I can tell there's no click when I press the brake. And I have no backup camera, and the shifter doesnt lock.

I checked fuses but none of them were labeled as such... They can't get to it until next week so...

Any idea's on how to clear the drive-start malfunction issue?

You need a code reader with the ability to clear codes. The body shop will have that.

Let the shop fix it all.
Your backup camera wiring runs down the right side of the license plate, you probably damaged the wiring or plugs.

Learn it, know it, live it.

^ I tried to visually inspect all of that and it appears that none of it is damaged...

But I did read where any kind of jolt to the rear can throw all of that stuff wacky.

They can take it monday (week from today) so I guess I'll just have to deal with it this week.

And to everyone ragging me about hitting a tree with a backup camera, tree was not within the view of the camera....
Plus I was watching the driver side, where other tree's were. lol

Um, carefully backing into something wouldn't cause $4k worth of damage. Blindly flying might, but cautiously backing wouldn't. LOL

That said, I blindly flew (drunk at the time, 33 years sober now) my '72 Int'l Scout into a 55gal drum filled with steel scrap trying to impress a girl once.
I let someone else drive me home and I learned an expensive lesson that day. Luckily, I worked for a body shop at the time so a friend fixed it for a couple hundred dollars, and another friend gave me some nice royal blue Imron paint to spray the whole truck. The painter (I prepped, he painted free) suggested spraying the removable top with undercoating, then painting that black. It looked really sharp and the whole thing only cost me about $450 total.

Truckwise, I've progressed from a '60 F-100, to a '72 Scout, to a '90 F-150 (ran it 17 years), and finally into my best truck yet, a brand new 2007 Tundra standard cab shortbed 2WD. She only has 70k miles now. I was a Ford man until I bought a Toyota Tundra. I loved every truck for one reason or another.

Try this, guys: Climb over your fender and stand next to the engine while you put in new plugs, points, condenser, and rotor. I could do that on the F100.

Itís the fender. I bumped the tree. Not very hard, right on the corner or the bumper. It folded the bumper into the fender. Which is why itís $4000.

Yeah just like new. Body shop did a great job. I cut the tree down too. Even pulled part of it over with the Tundra, so she got her
revenge.

Also got an upgrade from the body shop. I had bought the cheap matte black plastic letters to fill in the tailgate "Tundra"
And the body shop replaced them with some thicker carbon fiber looking ones... They are much nicer.
