While driving check engine and the battery light appeared on the dashboard and remained on. Then, vehicle stalled.

car   Battery problem 4

The ac delco battery leaked acid which dripped onto the front left brake line. I noticed this before it corroded the brake line and caused a crash. This has been happening to many vehicles with the ac delco battery. I ask you to investigate this before it kills hundreds of people. This should be a recall.
