Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1983 GMC G2500. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits.

While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your G2500 stranded. Your GMC G2500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
