Both Heat And Cold Can Harm Your Battery


The summer is behind us, but winter is coming. The extreme temperatures during both of these seasons can cause significant problems for your car's battery. Mtn. View Lincoln wants you to be informed about how extremes in temperatures can harm your battery, and what you can do about it.

When it is very cold during the winter, the power of your battery is reduced. This makes it harder for the battery to turn over the starter motor. In the heat, the battery works above capacity which causes the battery to drain at a faster rate than when it is operating at an average temperature.

In order to keep your battery in the best condition during temperature extremes, you need to make sure your battery is fully charged. Your service department can check your battery and make sure it is operating properly. Batteries that are four years old or more should be replaced before winter.
