battery life

Battery life ,wk11 2011 .3.0 diesel. What is the norm, present battery 2&half years old replaced under warranty Nov 2012. Now unseemly not charging.
UUNLESS there is circuit problem I am not aware of.

Any comments welcome.

Re: battery life

What is the voltage at the battery when the engine is running ? If above 13v then is probably charging, if below 12v then I would suspect the alternator.

In my temperate climate I would ecpect at least 5 years from an AGM battery.
