First off I apologise for the long post.
I was wondering if anybody on here could please give me a bit of help or advice as im so stressed out!
A lorry came into my lane on the M62 and smashed in my near side wing and the bumper was hanging off.The lorry did not stop and got away, I did not manage to trace this guy and the police were useless.I had to pay my £250 excess for the body work new bumper etc.. lost all my no claims.
When I was driving after the crash the battery light would come on and off and on the way to the garage to get it repaired, the car locked up abs came on battery lit up power steering went etc.
A garage fixed the body work and brought me the car back a week later on the back of a truck and said the alternator had gone and was not crash related damage.
I had a different garage put a refurb alternator on but it did not work so they put a new one on,It did not work either.
They called a auto electrician out and he put a direct feed from the alternator to the fuse box and said the blue/white wire was faulty and charged me £50.
The car now works but after the insurances garage had a look there saying the wiring is dodgy and I may not be covered.
So they sent it to another auto electrician and he says the blue/white wire is fine, but thinks the ecu is the problem and can be expensive, but he can bypass it with a legitimate ignition feed from 1 side to warning light feed in before anything out and that will fix the problem for another 80 quid!....
I just dont understand why the garage my insurance company has used wont accept that the car was fine before this crash but now isnt, and wont cover me for repairs.Ive already spent £592 including excess on this! Would the ombudsman service be any help? is there any thing else that I can say to the garage/insurance people? any help/advice greatly appreciated.
