What Extreme Weather Does to a Car Battery

Both extremely hot and extremely cold temperatures can impact how well your vehicle's battery operates. When it is cold out, the battery and starter may need more amps to turn the engine. This can be difficult if the battery is old or is not properly charged.

Even if the battery is new, it can experience excess wear if it is forced to start too many times in cold weather. When the battery is hot, it could lose its electrolyte. The battery itself could also be damaged or explode if it is exposed to excessively hot temperatures. Topping off the electrolyte can keep the product from overheating if you are driving on a hot day.
