Consumer was traveling 25mph battery light comes on & vehicle cuts off. At times when the A/C is, on it feels like it's draining the alternator. Dealer says the alternator is gone bad, no explanation.

Horn contact and/ or cancelling cam was replaced twice. When turning the wheel certain places have a dead spot. Also, the passenger's seat does not lock in place, it rocks. When pulling seat belt across consumer, and leaning forward to adjust the radio, seat belt locks up. While driving down the road at approximately 20mph in the neighborhood vehicle just dies. Took it to the dealer and was told it was just the battery. Had the battery replaced, and still the same problem. Contacted dealer and manufacturer.
