Buying a Replacement Battery for Jeep Cherokee

Your Cherokee doesn't have an expiration date, but its battery does. On average, auto batteries last anywhere from three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your Jeep Cherokee stranded. Look out for symptoms of a faulty car battery. A slow engine crank, a blinking battery or check engine light, bloated battery case, corroded battery posts, or dim headlights may all indicate that your battery needs attention.
