Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I've had the problem for about 2 years and now on third battery (factory, replacement and warranty replacement of it). Car and battery will be fine for 3-4 four months and then when car is used for multiple short trips and stops the battery will be dead the next morning. Sometimes the message readout says "Battery Saver". I've tried disconnecting aftermarket accessories but nothing has prevented re occurrence.

Update from Jan 20, 2012: Appears that by replacing the alternator I fixed the problem.
