Almost every motor vehicle uses 12vdc Lead-Acid Batteries, The deciding factor for you will be the size of the battery. Best bet for you would be to take the old battery, or, write down all the letters and numbers on your battery. An example would be something like this; Yakamoto FW27483. And the measurements of the Length, Width & Height. You should be able to go in to any Auto Parts store and find a battery. Also, I am assuming that your battery is a small one. Hardware Stores sell "Sealed Lead Acid" batteries for use in "EXIT" signs and "Emergency Lights" that are used in most stores.
[I am using one of this type of battery in my riding mower, 3 years and it still works.]
