How Long Does a Battery Last?

As a general rule, your car's battery should last for four years after you first put it in. In some cases, the manufacturer of the battery may provide a warranty of between three and five years. This means that you may be reimbursed if the battery fails to last that long.

Batteries may wear out quicker if a vehicle has a poor charging system. Those who have poor alternators or starters may also find that their batteries won't last for four years. Finally, a battery could be drained completely if you accidentally leave a door open overnight and have a door light on for several hours.

The good news for those who are having issues with their batteries is that they are relatively easy to work on. In some cases, having someone from Keene Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Jarrettsville can make it possible to have batteries fixed or replaced properly.
