Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 GMC K3500? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your K3500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your GMC K3500 battery.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty K3500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC K3500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
