Default loss of power when accelerating

4 months ago, I had a loss of power when accelerating. I replaced the 8 spark plugs and ignition coil and it fixed the problem.
Maybe 1 month ago, the garage replaced the bushings in my front lower control arms. He also removed the splash shield because it was touching the ground, and he said that there was no need for a splash shield (it touched the ground several times over the years and was tied with clips).
Yesterday, there were strong rains and the car drove a few times in deeper water than usual. Since then, the car has a loss of power when accelerating again.
Is it related to the absence of splash shield (which didn't protect against water)?

No. The underbody panels in the HCH2 are for aerodynamics and do little to nothing against water infiltration.

Today, I drove from Miami to Orlando for a 2 night stay there to enjoy some parks. I didn't drive for so long (4 hours) on the highway since 6 years. Towards the end of my trip, the IMA lamp turned on.My HCH 2008 has 165,000 miles. The battery has been replaced once at 90,000 miles.
I felt more the loss of power when accelerating after the IMA lamp turned on.
What should I do? I have a tight schedule to entertain my daughters in Orlando. Can I drive back to Miami in 2 days and then take care of this problem when I arrive back home?
Does it mean that my IMA battery is going to be dead (and so my car)?
