Airbags, your questions answered.

After they’ve had an accident, some people in Olathe and Gardner wonder why their airbags did not go off. Movies and television lead us to believe that airbags go off with the slightest bump.

After the alternator has done all that, any electricity that's left over is used to charge your battery. You can see where we're going: if the battery isn't getting enough electricity to stay charged, the problem may have something to do with the alternator. Now it could be that the alternator is bad – they do wear out over time. There are a number of failure points within the alternator, but in practice, it costs less to simply replace the alternator than to take it apart and r ... read more
