I bought a 2013 hybrid that had side swiped a bridge causing damage to rt doors and deploying ft seat and headliner airbags. The car was drove home from accident and parked. New battery installed and I replaced both doors and nothing to airbags. Now you have to jump start it and when you shut off it does nothing, even after an HR of idling. Only thing comes on dash is a steering wheel light. Help plz

Start with basic diagnostics, try to collect any more data or hints.

For all we know, a homeless guy stole your engine and that's why the car does nothing. We'd need more info. maybe you could check the battery voltage to start?

why was a new battery installed? maybe the damage was to something else? if you need to jump start it all the time and shutting off does nothing thats more than a battery issue. can you tell us more? any lights going off on your dash or any codes etc?
