The battery light on your dash indicates a charging system failure, that would be the alternator and its wiring. If you are still driving the car and haven't needed a jump start in four months, you probably have a malfunction in the circuit that checks the charging system.
Check your voltage at the battery with the vehicle running and if it is between 13.5-15 volts i wouldn't worry to much about it.

My 2007 Mazda Premacy battery, low & makes clicking noise so I disconnect ---terminal main battery in the bonnet. Do I just replace battery as normal? Are there any caution warning to check first?

by disconnecting the battery you run the risk of loosing all security codes for radio and the like
take the car to a battery shop and have the job done
they check the battery with a load tester first , then install a memory saver into the system so that there are no problems
all for the same price as you doing it yourself

My 2002 tribute that suddenly lost power today. What could cause this?

batteries have no guaranteed life so it could be a battery
I would consider the problem more likely to be a loose battery terminal, faulty alternator , drive belt condition or tension and a problem voltage regulator
all of the above can be checked and tested by an accredited auto electrician

I thought this was free support. Apparently I was wrong. How did I fix it? Easy, I broke down on the freeway and got towed home on a flatbed! That was easy!!
