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.

The car runs fine as long as there is juice in the battery. When the battery runs out of juice, the car dies. I have to charge the battery and it will run fine until the next time. It seems the alternator is not keeping the battery charged but after five alternators, there has to be a different cause. Could it be the computer and if so, how expensive/difficult is the fix?
