Have you spoken to the dealership OWNER ??
Not the service manager but an actual owner.
You need to emphasize that everything worked when you brought the car in.
Repeat that over and over as many times as necessary.
When you get right down to it, it is the only fact that really matters.
Sounds to me like whomever you are dealing with is totally incompetent.
I think it is likely that the whole problem is just a loose wire or blown fuse and they want to charge you for all new components.
But then.......what about this "accident"? And why did you feel the need to mention that ??
If that doesn't work, look in your owners manuals for a phone number to call Toyota directly. Often found in the warranty pamphlet (yes I know it is not a warranty issue).
Where are you located ? In the US or elsewhere ??
