If you're talking about a car battery - every five years or so.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have had vehicle batteries last for 3.8 years / dead cell / replaced under battery warranty

8 years / weak when the weather turned cold

6 and 1/2 years / dead cell ( original Motorcraft battery in my vehicle )

I'm still using my replacement Motorcraft battery ( since February 2002 , now over 12 years , works fine ) * but that's not to say I go somewhere and come out to find that I need a boost because the battery has a dead cell

Replace it when it will no longer take or hold a charge.

Batteries should be replaced about every 3 to 5 years, some can even last seven. However, it is obvious that if the battery dies (with no ability to "jump"), is corroted, or gets a dead cell in it then it should be replaced.

The computer only resets when the battery is removed. The alternator just charges the battery, so if the battery is left connected when the alternator is replaced, the computer should not reset.

"The length of time a cell phone battery will last is based in part on how the phone is used. The more often the battery is used and needs recharging, the less time it will last overall. The brand of battery also affects its life. However, a cell phone battery should last about a year."

Although there is no set on how often your brakes should be replaced, I would just pay attention to your car. When you notice something wrong, I would call your auto body shop.

Well you should charge the battery. Often times the battery will recharge itself if you alow it to sit without trying to crank it again.

Of course he should. To replace the battery is such minor surgery that it can be done in a Doctors Office. A weak battery is no reason to pull the plug.
