St. Paul Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Discusses Extreme Temperature Effects on Your Car Battery

When you’re driving around St. Paul, it’s important to know how your battery will be affected by extreme temperatures. You want to make sure that your battery has enough life in it to start your vehicle at any time. Storing your vehicle inside of the garage will make it easier to keep the battery out of extreme temperatures.

Hot temperatures can cause chemical reactions to increase. You may find that the battery doesn’t last nearly as long as you expected. Internal corrosion may occur, too, causing the battery to stop working.

Cold temperatures will cause chemical reactions to slow down. It may take longer for a battery to turn over, especially because the oil inside the engine has become sluggish. Batteries will require twice as much power in extremely cold situations, which can have a negative impact on the life of the battery.
