Why is my 07 mariner hybrid all over the road in rain/snow after an accident i had? I hit a guard rail a few weeks ago and had to change passenger side front tire, wheel, strutt, and tie-rod. It was a little loose afterwards (may have slightly bent a-frame) but nothing too drastic. Today when it started raining i couldn't keep it on the road over 25mph without losing control. It still reads "tire sensor fault" on instrument panel but everything else checks out. I know the basics for auto care but don't know where to start with this one. We're supposed to get inches of snow tomorrow too. Alignment maybe? ? Please help?

Sounds like chirping or tapping under the hood. It continues even after I turn off the engine and only stops when i open the door.

Vehicle totally losses power and I can get over to the side and sit for a minute and it will crank easily and go again, but the problem continues.Can You help me?

The graphic has never shown that my car is in 4wd, it only shows the front tires illuminated. I have gotten stuck a couple of times, in my own drive when I was trying to make it go into 4wd. (it never did, had to be dug out). Does your back tires on the graphic light up?

fwd has always worked normally. suddenly fwd when there was about an inch of snow signaled that it was deactivating. Car is almost useless without fwd. Replaced all tires at suggestion of dealer. Shortly after tires next storm caused exactly same deactivation. Dealer says fwd is deactivating because it is overheating and therefore working properly, and says computer reports no errors. BUT DEALER HAS NO EXPLANATION FOR WHY IT IS OVERHEATING NOR HOW TO FIX IT, (SINCE IT IS NOT BROKEN EVIDENTLY.) Could anyone who knows anything about such a situation let us know. Thanks.
