Run over by a car

My iPhone ended up on the street and was run over by several cars. Thanks to my otter box, the case was untouched, but the screen was completely busted. I replaced the screen, but the phone still won't turn on. What are some other things to check? Should I replace the battery or the logic board?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks everyone for you suggestions! I replaced the screen, home button, and battery. The log board looks ok, but I'm not savvy enough to really know if it is missing anything. It still won't turn on at this point so I'm at a loss. :(

Try a battery as it could be dead and as for changing the logicboard only way til do that is to buy another 5c and take it's motherboard ..

The motherboard isn't a part you can just buy of the shelf

Logic boards are sometimes farmed by repair shops and sold online. If it comes to requiring a new board eBay is a possibility, but buyer beware.

The battery is a likely spot first, as it will be far more cost effective. Do mind the adhesive underneath the battery in the iPhone5c/5s as it can be tricky to deal with. PLASTIC tools only on this one!

I had a friend 2 weeks ago who had his run over by 3 cars, busted the screen, replaced it, and powered up, but after testing eveything, the phone would shutdown when using the camera, found the rear camera was slightly bent which broke it.

Basically, look very carefully at everything inside! See if anything looks slightly bent! Compare pictures of the motherboard to see if any chips have come off, and just try disconnecting the front facing camera, usually this will power up but with a nand flash error if there is a problem with this componant, but it can't hurt trying.

Your phone probably has hairline crackes inside on the mother board and also the components . It's not 100% anymore. Did you purchase insurance on the phone? Myself, I would get a new one.
