Without seeing the vehicle, and if there is no check engine light, I would start with maintenance items first. Change the fuel filter, Air Cleaner and check the spark plugs. These items don't have sensors directly monitoring their efficiency. You can usually get a much better diagnostic taking your vehicle into a shop and having it checked over. Hope this helps some.

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) Those seem to be wheel speed sensor codes. I would have the braking system checked out. Could be a loose connection or dirt/debris (mud) can cause the signals to get be erradic. Thanks, Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) There is just not enough information here to assist you. The only thing I can think of is that the tire blew out and a piece of the tire cause damage to some electrical component. Would need to see the vehicle to even have a clue which direction to point you. Thanks, Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) Sounds like a component that controls more than one circuit failed. There are relays that send power out to different circuits. Often times located under the hood. Check owners manual for the different circuits connected to a single relay and see if it is the cause. You can swap matching relays around and see if the affected systems change. Thanks

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) The brake pads have a lining that allows them to dissipate heat. When this lining is worn off you are left with the metal backing plate contacting the metal rotor. When this happens they can fuse together. When this happens it literally locks up the wheel so it can't spin. With enough force (giving it gas) it can break free and the vehicle will start to move again. You need to get the rear brakes serviced before driving it more as this is very unsafe. In regards to driving in 4 Wheel Drive (Lo or High) this should only be done on loose (gravel, dirt, mud, etc) ground conditions, never on dry pavement. AWD drive and 2Hi are fine on dry pavement. As for noises they are usually not supposed to be excessively loud. There is a procedure for changing the different drive axle configurations and the owners manual will indicate which noises are normal. Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) Sounds like a timing issue or maybe even a dirty fuel filter. There are several things that would need to be looked at to diagnose this. Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) Is the belt okay? Have the battery charged then tested. Recheck the Fuse block to be sure something didn't come loose. Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) There is now way for me to know your level of mechanical ability or the tools you have at your disposal. Changing the speed sensor is not difficult as compared to doing a timing belt or chain. However, with the proper information researched you should be able to do it with basic wrenches and tools. Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) Call the locksmith you used before and see if he can recut the key again at a lesser expense or have two keys made this time so you have an extra. I believe there is a chip that needs programmed to the vehicle. Kevin

This is Kevin with NWA Auto Shop. Without seeing the vehicle, I can only theorize. Based on the limited information given, these are my thoughts. A) I would look for a picture or diagram online usually your new pump has the diagram on it also. Most fuel pumps have a supply, return and vapor line. They tend to line up with where they should be on their own or only connect one way. The manufacter usually has a tech line that can help also for after market items. Kevin
