my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. So you've replaced 6 batteries and 3 alternators within 1 year? Tell me, when the vehicle stalls out do you notice if the dash lights flicker or shut off?

Sorry, I'm trying to understand what exactly is happening here. So the vehicle will not completely shut down and cut off? What I understand you saying is that it will bog down and lose power, and when it does the check engine and vsa lights come on. Is that correct? Have you had the computer scanned for codes to see what code is stored in relation to the check engine light?
