three years if parked outside year round, maybe four if you park insideHave a 2017 Sport with the original battery. Wondering if I should replace it as a precaution. Would like to get some feedback on when others have had to replace it. Thanks
Both extremes of hot and cold temperatures are hard on engine components. That and the age would make me opt for a change as you are about at the time for it to give up the ghost. It will be fine until it isn't and then you're in a bind. That battery and that Renegade will not give you any notice. The yellow top Optima battery has decent reviews but I'd just go with a name brand and not a discount battery.Appeciate the comments. Vehicle has only 20K miles on it and used in sunny FL. Found an Odyssey battery for $300 which I may order. Part of me says to wait until original dies, but don't want wife stuck someplace with a dead battery. Might mention this Renegade has been totally trouble free from day 0ne. Much more reliable than any other Jeep we have owned.
Do it. The electrical system (especially the power steering) on the Renegade needs a solid battery.Have a 2017 Sport with the original battery. Wondering if I should replace it as a precaution. Would like to get some feedback on when others have had to replace it. Thanks
We just replaced ours it was 5 years old but testing showed it was still good and had 590 CCA so not much degradation. The Battery said 600 CCA on the top. I was impressed but with us going on vacations and stuff I felt it was time to replace it just for general purposes !!3 years: Normal.
4-5 years: Good going.
\> 5 years: failure, just when you don't need it, likely.
Not as far as I can see. My 2020 USB Service Manual just says to disconnect the negative post of the battery when doing electrical work. After first unplugging the Intelligent Battery Sensor first, if you've got that (the red thing on top of my battery):Is there any special procedure or something to be careful with when changing the battery?
Replaced it on my 2017 late 2022.Have a 2017 Sport with the original battery. Wondering if I should replace it as a precaution. Would like to get some feedback on when others have had to replace it. Thanks
I’m in the same position, my 2017 a little lag when starting so I’m replacing it this week at Mavis. Putting in a 24 month Exide battery.Some members have reported problems with the computers that require a trip to a dealer to correct after running their battery too low. Waiting until you have starting problems to replace the battery is too late. It needs to be done proactively on our vehicles. I think 4 years is a good recommendation. You are on borrowed time in my opinion.
