The Change in Temperature Can Greatly Effect the Battery in Your Car

The extreme temperature changes in Winter and Summer can have adverse effects on the life and performance of your vehicle's battery. Being aware of the reasons for lack of battery performance in each season can help you avoid being unable to start your vehicle.

When temperatures continue to reach over 90 degrees, it is best to keep a close check on the battery electrolytes and top off as needed. The heat in Summer is a significant reason a battery will die due to depleted electrolytes.

The colder temperatures of winter can put a high demand on your vehicle's battery due to higher amperage needed to start a vehicle in cold temperatures. The higher the number of cold cranking amps (CCA) the better your battery will do in frigid temperatures.

Before the extreme temperature changes of Summer and Winter, have the experienced service technicians at Team Dodge check your battery.
