5 to 7 years, most of time remote starter didn't start the car at winter time ,then that's the time to change the battery.
The typical battery life expectancy ranges from 3 to 5 years.
别郁闷了, 哥一个本田车, 才开了一年电池就挂了. DEALER说不保修, 但看在时间这么短的份上新电池算半价.
John Cannon, owner of My Car Doc in McCordsville, Indiana, says batteries typically last three to six years. He adds there’s no specific mileage to follow because “the battery will age even when the car is sitting in the garage.”
Beckwith, meanwhile, recommends replacing batteries every four years regardless of how they test at the service station. Hovig Manouchekian, operations manager of Funk Brothers Automotive in Los Angeles, advises switching batteries every three years, while other mechanics we talked with recommend replacing them around four or five years.
Most batteries will have a stamp on them, which tells you the month and year the battery was made so you’ll have an idea of when it needs to be replaced. It’s also recommended to check your car owner’s manual.
“It’s always a good idea to change the battery right before extreme weather,” says Cannon, who adds a battery can fail easier when the weather transitions to freezing or extreme heat.
If you’re lucky in that your car battery does show signs of dying, those may include electrical systems going on and shutting off and the engine cranking low, mechanics say.
“Your mechanic will keep you posted of its condition if any red flags come up during the test,” Manouchekian says. “I recommend getting it checked every three months during your oil change service.”

Factors in determining when to replace a car battery
There are factors that determine how long a battery may last.
“Signs of acid leaking or corrosion buildup on the terminals are typically signs that the battery is failing,” says Bryan Kauffeld, vice president of Ulmer’s Auto Care – Anderson in Cincinnati.
Cannon says the type of warranty the battery comes with can also affect longevity. He adds batteries typically come with one-, two- and three-year warranties.
“The better the warranty, the better and more expensive the battery,” Cannon says. “A battery with a three-year warranty may have 200 cold-cranking amps. It’s built a little stronger and has a little more power.”
Beckwith says a couple of tips to keep your battery in tip-top shape include testing it regularly and cleaning the outside of the battery terminals and connected wires.
“One of the most confusing things about modern batteries is the concept of them being maintenance free,” Beckwith says. “While they don’t need to have fluid levels checked and topped off, they still need cleaning and regular testing so that drivers don’t end up stranded when the battery fails.”
Mechanics say you can use a toothbrush, water and baking soda to clean around the terminals. Always turn the vehicle off and remove the negative and positive clamps, in that order. After scrubbing the terminals with baking soda and rinsing with water, reconnect the clamps starting with the positive terminal.
“We use a special battery terminal cleaner common at any local auto parts store and water,” says Kauffield, who adds he cleans battery terminals daily.
丫还收了个检查费, 确认是电池问题 ...
但我开过的几个车, 电池 9 年以上到卖车也没有问题.
