How Hot and Cold Temperatures Affect Your Car’s Battery

As you’re driving around, you may find that your battery doesn’t last as long as it should. This is because it is significantly affected by the temperature outside.

Extremely hot weather can cause the battery fluid to evaporate. It can also cause the lead plates inside the battery to corrode. You may also find that high heat will also cause the voltage regulator and other components in the battery to malfunction.

Extremely cold weather can thicken engine oil, causing the battery to work overtime in order to turn the engine over. Battery capacity can also reduce considerably in lower temperatures.

If you are exposing your vehicle to extreme temperatures, your battery may not last as long as you think it will. Our service center can test your battery and make recommendations on a new one.
