I hit a deer on passagener side damaging headlight, bumper and grill. The air bags did not deploy. My car stayed running until I cut it off to wait for a police report. When I went to start it, everything is normal except it doesn't try to turn over.
In my dodge magnum 05 the heat had never worked for more than 6 yrs, last Thursday I had a check engine and I scanned the car and found the codes U1403, P0700 which I erase before I get the problem fixed. I was going to do some work on the steering wheel and last Saturday I disconnect the negative from the battery and let it sit over the night. And yesterday which was December 24th I got no cool air at all only the heat is working now. As I said before heat was never working. I went under the hood to check the A/C compressor, it worked fine and when I touch the cooling tube it is supper cool that's mean the A/C suppose to blow very cold instead it's contrary. Need some help please because before even I put the heat all the way to the max, I will feel no sign of the heat and now it is visa versa even I turn on the A/C I only got the heat. Please help.

I asked a question a couple days ago that freedom auto answered. I an't drive over 40, car starts to jerk/lose power. I changed transmissions, sensors, and still the same!

Do I need to have PCM flashed to recognize the newly installed transmission? I'm on vacation in a week, I would like to come to freedom auto and get a complete diagnosis.
What would cause the vehicle to jerk, and not go past 40 mph with pedal to floor? Driving between 5 and 39 mph, vehicle drives fine transmission shifts correctly. I tried cleaning the throttle body, changed evap, still the same! engine is not throwing any trouble codes either
opened tail gate and closed it worked and once open and close driver door it worked
