How Your Battery Capabilities Change with Temperature Extremes

When the weather gets really hot, the battery on your car works more efficiently for a short while. Unfortunately, the hot weather also speeds up the corrosion process with your battery and will end up shortening the life of it. Hot weather will make you need a battery faster than normal.

If the weather is freezing at night, you may discover that it's hard to start your car in the morning. Sometimes your battery will only work at 50% power in the really cold weather, making it hard for your battery to turn on your car. A battery that is dying will more likely die completely in the cold weather.

Bring your car to Lincoln of LaPorte if you are having problems starting your car and you think the battery is the problem. Our service center will test your battery and recommend replacement if your battery isn't working as well as it should.
