Steve :

A car battery should last around 5 years

Steve :

Most battery are warranted for five years

Steve :

If the battery is dead then preform a trickle charge for 24 hours and if it still will not start the car then have it replaced under warranty were you bought it.

Steve :

It is possible for a battery to go dead when not in use for a year but the trickle charge should bring it back to life.
