    My car's battery is turning 6 soon. I think I should buy one too.

    I think its 3 years old., motolite gold sya. Called a motolite delivery kasi nga di kami maka alis ng parking lot. Pero bago dumating ang delivery eh nag start na yung kotse by trying to ignite it for 10 seconds or so.

    Pag dating ng motolite he asked me to shut off the engine, he then tapped some gadget to the battery and asked us to start the engine, it started naman. I forgot what unit of measurement he said pero 10 na lang daw yung reading. Nag start daw yung engine kasi mainit pa. Pag cold start daw eh mahihirapan. Kailangan na palitan battery. We're going to the province and I don't wanna risk being stranded kaya binili ko na.

    I don't know if I've been duped or not.

    Mechanics usually say that sulit na kung maka-3 years ang battery. Super sulit din for peace of mind

    i already mentioned this.
    my colleague replaces her battery every two years, no matter what.
    for her peace of mind.
    years ago, she had previous experience with that feeling of helplessness, when her battery died.

    I change mine every 2 years or 2 1/2. This is the time it shows signs of weakness like difficulty in starting. Not going to trouble myself and insists extending its life. It's just not worth it for me because I've experienced my car shutting off in the middle of the road near Serendra. Luckily, the construction guys helped me push my car to life.

    If the mechanic says 10, he means 10 volts. Your battery is kaput already. But, I wonder, did he mean 10 volts when the engine is off or 10 volts when the engine is on? If 10 volts when the engine is on, then, you have a dead alternator. Get it tested to confirm. It should read about 13.5-14.5 volts. This tells you it's charging.

    This should work until battery dies before 2 years .... happened to me twice .... both last year ... 2sm died on the 16th month ... 3sm died on the 19th ... 3sm stranded me in the middle of the road .... 2sm died at home .... two batteries, two different cars ... both motolite gold ... was able to claim warranty .... if that's any consolation ... nothing's foolproof .... peace of mind is relative.

    series? you don't series the battery! you parallel it. technicals technicals...

    with the engine running, if that battery light is still on, it is probably your alternator or something else that is related to your charging system. it can even be just a loose connection.
