If the battery is the original that came with the car then it needs to be replaced no matter what. Batteries have a 3 to 5 year life.

If you have a local shop replace the battery the cost of the battery will likely be about $100 to $130 plus a installation fee of about $30. You could however, go buy your own battery at sears for around $95 and install it yourself.
