The normal life of a battery is about three years. No matter what you do or how often you recharge it, it will probably need replacing by then. However, the battery might have had the power drained down on it for other reasons. It could be that the inside lights were left on over night, or the car was not driven often enough.
A toxic white substance surrounding the terminals of your car battery, is a common reason why batteries fail. If you notice this, you should take your car to Louetta Automotive to have the toxic material safely cleaned off and have the battery checked.
