I was told by the dealership that my 2007 Compass Limited needed the front control arms and right rear bearing replaced. My father in law replaced them yesterday(and did the left rear bearing as well). Well, after he finished and we test drove it, it threw a bunch of lights on the dash (4wd!, ABS, traction) and shuddered when we got it above 25mph...so he turned the esp off and it stopped shuddering and drives fine. If you drive it for about 5 minutes or so the 4wd! light comes on and stays on until you turn it off. But everytime we have to turn the esp off to make it drive normal. Our suspicion is that one of the sensors or both got damaged. I tried going to Autozone to get a code read but they said they can't read the wheel sensors.
Does this sound about right? This hasn't ever happened until he did the replacements. If so, are the sensors fairly easy to replace?
The good news is that the noise from the worn out bearing is gone...lol!
Thanks...not very mechanically inclined...
