Pulled out of snow, think I pulled a sensor

    Hello.

    I have a 2010 Tacoma 4WD, 4 cyl, manual trans. I got stuck "head first" in the snow and was pulled out backwards. The mud flap on the drivers front was ripped off and I probably something else as well.

    My air bag light, check engine, and a couple other lights are on, speedometer/odometer won't work. Blinkers don't work, but I have lights and brake lights. Seat belt reminder light comes on, but the dinger doesn't work. The traction control thing doesn't ding either. The heater vent switch doesn't work.

    I tried resetting it using the scanner thing at the auto parts store, no effect.

    I figure I pulled some sensor something off, but don't see anything obvious when I look around the wheels and underneath. Where else should I look?

    I have to keep driving until I can get it fixed (probably at least several days). Is that going to hurt it?

    Is my odometer going to appear to be tampered with after this? How do I fix that so I don't get in trouble when I go to sell it someday?

    Thanks!

    try pulling the battery terminals off for 30 minutes. then reconnecting. should do a good reset. your stereo presets will be lost however.

    There was a blown ignition fuse so I replaced that and also took the battery cables off for good measure. Gonna go check it in a bit and hopefully it's fixed!

    Check all of the fuses.
    Get the code read, not just clear it.
