The Effect of Extreme Temperatures on Car Batteries

While it is sometimes taken for granted, the battery is a vital engine component that can bring a halt to any plans when it malfunctions. Wide swings in temperature can have a big effect on your battery, shortening its lifespan or causing it to stop working altogether.

In cold weather, your engine will need to draw a lot of power in order to start. A cold battery may not have the amperage necessary to meet the engine's demand, even if the battery is new. In the summer, high temperatures can shorten a battery's life, as the electrolytes within the battery will evaporate or overcharge in the heat.
