Hot and Cold Affect Your Car's Battery

The battery in your car is needed to start the car in the morning, and it is needed to maintain certain functions while you are driving. Extremes of both heat and cold can have detrimental effects on your car's battery.

Extremely cold weather can drain your battery quickly. When it is below freezing, your battery needs a full charge to start your vehicle. Cold weather can bring your battery down to the point where you can't start your car. Temperatures in the 90s and above can put great stress on your battery. These temperatures can make your battery work too hard and cause it to wear out faster.

It is important that you keep your battery in the best shape possible. If you need your battery checked, or if you need a new battery in your car, contact Smothers European Volvo Cars. The service department can perform a wide range of vehicle services.
