How often to replace a battery .
When starting , dash lights come on. engine won't turn over. Only does this once in a while. Doesn't matter if the engine is cold or warm.
Took it to the shop. They can't find the issue.
5 years is about the life span of a good battery. But it depends on your driving habits, a history of short trips-- start, go to store, off, start, home. It has X-Number of start/charge cycles among other factors. But look at the cable connections, if there is corrosion, looks sorta like mold growing, baking soda and water will clean those and if they must come off to clean use a wire brush or better one of these, can be bought at Dollar store Then vaseline on the terminals will prevent it from happening again
If you do buy a battery, invest in a good one. A $150 Interstate may sound expensive..well it is I guess..but a $50 battery will strand you at the worst possible time
