Do I need a new battery?

Hi guys

I have noticed that I get the battery low warning very quickly after turning the engine off and this has been happening for a while. I have never had any problem starting the car though.I noticed in the last couple of weeks when I unlock the car the DRL sometimes don't come on.

Does this mean I need to replace the battery before it is too late? I think it is the origional so it is 6 yrs old. Not sure if that is old or not. I do short town and medium length motorway journeys regularly.

Thanks

Nick

OEM battery is designed for max of 5 years. If yours is older than that, then its your decision.
