Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

AWD/4x4 not working and potentially no ABS

I have a 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid AWD but the AWD/4X4 is not working.
When I try to go up an icy hill, there is no power to the rear whatsoever, just the front wheels are spinning. No dash lights come on in normal driving or when front tires are spinning - not ABS and not the traction control. I checked all the fuses related to the ABS and AWD system. I also checked the tone rings, they’re not cracked. Any ideas on what the problem could be, and a potential solution?

On the same hill the brakes are locking up, so I’m pretty sure the ABS is not working.

Thanks in advance for any input.
