Help - need help with transmission control unit fault
My slk320 was involved in a fairly low impact accident. Insurance agreed to pay for exhaust, catalytic convertor and paint job. However car suffered a transmission issue immediately after collision - would not shift gears and hence car needed to be towed; diagnostics show that the transmission control unit had an error and shifter lever position cannot be determined.
Insurance says that fault data does not support issue and could be a problem with mtnce!! Since car was fine before accident the burden of proof is on me to establish fault, according to Insurance. Is there a way to determine that this issue was not present before crash (speed data?) or if it was caused by collision?
