Vehicle Protection System and Hill Holder Messages after underneath hit?

The car is 159 2.4 2005-2007. As I said occasionaly Hill Holder and VPS warnings appear after I hit a tall road shaft right through the middle of the front end of the car. They appear like 1 time in 5-6 startups. Mostly on startup but sometimes while driving. The damages on the car from the hit were only the protective crust and the exhaust pipe coming from the engine. They are not fixed yet but will be fixed soon by the insurance company. Thats why I want to find out why these warnings appear, because I'm 98% sure they are in result of that accident. Thanks a lot for your time!

Best to remove and clean the negative electrical grounding straps between chassis and engine/gearbox.
