Minor accident, truck won't start

So someone hit the back of my truck last night. The damage was purely cosmetic as far as I can tell. At first the key wouldn't turn in the ignition, but with a little wheel jiggle, it finally turned. But none of the electrical stuff is turning on (fuel pump, dash lights). When I hooked up a multimeter to the battery, it read 24, which seems high. Where do I start? Thanks for any help.See More

Charlie Chao replied to Josh Gilmer's discussion I need a driver door???
"The regulator is for manual windows. It's what keeps the window in place after you've rolled it up or down. Shipping will be $100. The door has everything on it (interior, mirror, handles) and I'll sell it for $60. Thanks."

Charlie Chao replied to Josh Gilmer's discussion I need a driver door???
"It looks great but the window regulator has some issues. The window will stay up or come most of the way down. I'll have to look into shipping, but it will probably be at least $100."

"So I've finally gotten around to reindexing my torsion bars, but now I can't get it back in. Is there some trick other than hitting it on the anchor end with a soft mallet? "

"I'm having a similar issue as the first scenario you described. It idles at 1000 but when I drive around and come to a light or stop sign, it idles at 2000. The vacuum hoses look fine and fit snug. "
