Question 12 volt pickup battery

How do I check the cells in a 12 volt battery. Battery is 5 years old. Want to avoid being stranded with a dead battery, but want to get all the "good" out of this one.

You can go to an autoshop and have them test it. I am sure they will do it for free.

Or you can bring it autozone or pepboys and they will have a battery tester there that can do a more indepth test.

Also, in order to get all the life out you will have to get stranded eventually.

Probably not what you want to hear, but I second hotrodder's comment. If you REALLY want to avoid getting stranded, now's the time to replace it.
