That's a fairly good pop, does it not start?
So I’m on here to ask a few questions along the way, but long story short I got a 2012 Colorado with the 4 cylinder. It rear ended someone and I decided to try repairing it. Just the drivers airbag was blown. And as far as I can tell after having torn it down the engine is ok, I’ve decided to replace the water pump bc the radiator was pressed against it. What are somethings I need to fix or check to ensure that it’ll start. Is there basically some kind of reset I need to make sure I do before I try starting it? What about the computer? Do I need to flash it? Etc. this is my first repair and I want to make sure the truck will run before I go through with the cosmetic fixes. Pictures included are when I picked it up and what I’ve stripped down so far. View attachment 385658 View attachment 385659

Ok coolnothing to reset and unless something shorted the BCM might s well try in start it fter you makes sure there are no bare wires/connectors
