Hello all, Parents bought a 2011 compass, traction control, abs light and 4 wheel drive light keeps coming on followed by loss of power. Also when accelerating it sounds like a damn golf ball rolls from one side of the car to the other. The garage they take it to just replaces the abs sensor, resets the code and calls it good, clearly this isn't the issue. Any help appreciated.

I had those lights come on my Patriot and the gas pedal became unresponsive for about 15secs (felt like hours). Took it to the dealer and they replaced a wheel speed sensor haven't had a problem since.
Don't know about the noise though. Maybe a wheel speed sensor is bad/knocked loose?
Hope it's resolved soon.

If the sensor was replaced and the problem still exists then it's a faulty tone ring, which is integral to the wheel bearing. A bad wheel bearing would also explain the noise.
