After hitting a large rock and rolling my 2020 Defender Limited onto its side, my passenger side a-arms were bent fairly bad. Just ordered new heavy duty a-arms but now the machine will not start. I got a PPS code on the dash screen and the battery was almost dead. After charging the battery for a couple hours I tried again and everything lights up and works but the machine will not start. It sounds like a buzzing coming from the battery location. Anyone know what could be wrong.

Unfortunately not, a buzzing might indicate a bad relay but if you had a code I would suggest you check to see what the code is it should point you to the electrical problem. It may require a trip to the dealer?🤔

Well I got it started. Pulled the plugs and found the top of the cylinders were full of oil (hydro locked). Cycled a few times, put some fuel in each cylinder to loosen the oil ( still cold here). Put the plugs back in and she fired right up. Smoking a lot though but that will burn off after a bit.
