Charge the battery. many cars these days do not fully charge the battery to avoid boiling over and corroding the terminals. I plug a charger into my Cruze and Vectra every couple of months to top up the charge. the battery (alternator) voltage should be 14.6 v to fully charge the battery, many cars only charge at 13.6 volts and that is not enough to keep it full.
This of course vary between countries, in colder climates like Scotland may be different.
Typically lead acid batteries last 4-5 years depending on how they are used.

Hi need help ppl. My battery light is flashing after i plugged my tyre pump thing into the cigarette lighter, never had it in for even 5 min and when i started my engine after it, the battery light kept flashing, then my alarm system wouldnt work my cd player screen reset the date and time, ejected my cd. I dont know what to do, only had the car 5 days and its not even 4 years old yet. How do i fix all this??????
If you bought your car from a dealer take it back and ask him to replace battery with a new one as it sounds like it needs replacing.

Hi Mick, well i pretty much got fobbed off. Guy at the garage started talking in car tech language, told me there was nothing they could do further. I drove for 10secs and it came back on. Went back to the garage and kicked up hell. So far the lights off, hope it stays that way. And thanks so much for asking how i got on mick, much appreciated
Flyte, if the light comes back on try taking it to a auto electrician or to another garage for them to run some test's.
