How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’98 Dodge Neon with 97,000 miles. A few days ago while driving, I noticed that the battery light was on and all the gauges were going crazy (up and down). This happens only when the vehicle is in motion. I tested the battery and it’s good. What’s causing the problem?

This year’s slogan for the West Seneca event is “A divided town united by a ribbon” referring to cross-town rivals East and West coming together for a common cause. Athletes from West Seneca East and West Senior High School will begin competing at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19 at the Buffalo Niagara Court Center, 425 Meyer Road in West Seneca.

West girls varsity volleyball coach Molly McDermid decided to organize West Seneca’s Dig Pink last year after hearing about the program through a local college.
