First time user on this forum and would like some help.
I have a 159 3.2 V6 Q 2008 year model. I hand an accident on the 14th of August, the insurance company took the car to their preferred smash repairer who replaced all with new parts. Damage was front number, hood, headlights, etc... There was no damage to the chassis or any mechanical problem been caused by the accident.
Due to delay in parts availability in Australia the car stayed at the smash repairer till the 22nd of September.
I picked up the car saying its all done on the 22nd at 8am, drove it for 17km and it died on me @10:30am). First the battery light turned on then all other lights started turning on from ABS, Airbag,... And within 5 minutes the engine stopped.
The insurance company towed the car back to the same repairer after couple of days. Who still scratching their heads to find what the problem is.
I did some search on what causes this fault and found on this forum that its may be the Alternator.
Now my question is; if its the alternator, will that be consistent with the accident or maybe because the car was parked for over a month??
You feedback is mucky appreciated.
