So.. i hit a deer with my charger and when it happened, i lost all brakes due to the ABS Control Module being destroyed. i have replaced everything mechanically but the car will not start. it acts like it doesnt know im pressing the brake pedal. i try to start but when i press the push button start, instead of going to run it goes to ACC and still tells me to press brake pedal on the display... i know the ABS control module has to mated to the computer at a shop but the dealer tells me that the car should still start. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Im at a loss and out of ideas. please help! i want my baby back!

I didn't think about that. I'm checking that right now. Hopefully that's the problem because we are seriously out of ideas and I was just about to call the tow truck to take to a dealer.. I know it's gonna have to go to a dealer eventually for the new ABS Control Module but I'm hoping to drive it there instead of tow lol..
So there is no brake lights coming on. I got down under the pedal and found the connector for the switch and it looks fine to me. I unplugged it, Plugged it back in. Everything is fine. But still will not start. Going to check fuses now. Hmm...
Problem solved. I feel stupid. All it was the main connector going into abs unit wasn't in all the way.. She is purring again. Thanks for the help though!
