Extreme Weather Patterns and Your Vehicle’s Battery

Very few things are as frustrating as trying to start your car or truck first thing in the morning only to find out that the battery is dead. While modern batteries should last for quite some time, there are a few outside variables that could be draining your battery without you even realizing it. That includes extreme weather patterns such as heat waves and cold fronts.

In addition to impacting the battery’s acid capacity, high and low temperatures also force the engine to work much harder. When the weather is particularly cold, the battery will need to send extra power to the starter motor. During the summer months, the battery and engine will become extremely hot, and that affects the overall electrical consumption as well.
