Hi there,Is this happening in gear or in park?All you did was rotate tires? Nothing in the engine compartment at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In gear. Nothing in the engine
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.
Ok, so just to be clear the car isn't driveable at the moment because of no power?Or does the surge happen and then the car will actually take off?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Undriveable. Only forward and reverse at idle speed..
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.
What an odd problem. Can you manually turn your traction control off via the switch on the dash and see if the car will drive and let me know please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I tried that, no luck.

I am going to put your question back out on the list for the other experts. Please try to be patient as we have a lot of folks that sign on at different times of the day and maybe someone has come across this before. I cannot see how rotating the tires would cause this type of issue unless a wire was pinched or a tone ring was broken. Either of these should store an ABS code and keep the light on.Please don't reply or it will lock you right back to me and the other experts will not see it.Sorry I can't help with this one.

Very strange happining Sunday. Changed wheels back to the original set up, it is now running great. Good power. No slip/abs lights. Very strange?????
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
Did you change the whole wheels? Are two tires newer than the other? What size wheels are these?
