Temperature Extremes Can Destroy Your Battery

When the air temperature goes to extremes, it’s hard for your battery to work properly. In very hot weather conditions, your battery will begin to evaporate fluid. This results in a temporary improvement of your battery, followed by your battery breaking down from the heat.

When the weather gets cold, your battery may struggle to turn over the engine. It takes more power to start a cold engine, and your battery may not have enough juice to start your car on cold mornings.

Check your battery to see what temperatures it is rated for to make sure you are using the right battery for the weather in your area. If you need help with your car battery, come in to Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Helena to talk with a technician in our service center. Your battery can be tested to see if you need to replace it or charge the current one.
