Is There a Reason Extreme Weather Causes Issues for Car Batteries

Like any other battery, a car battery suffers from cell death and ceases to work. Properly caring for your car can help the battery's life. Even then, however, extreme temperatures cause trouble. Batteries die in both hot and cold weather, and many drivers wonder why. Basically, the battery's design gets affected by temperature swings.

When the temperature gets too hot, a battery might die. When you overcharge the battery in hot weather, the odds of ruining the battery increase. While hot weather in Woodbridge South, ON is concerning, more drivers likely worry about the winter's impact.

Cold weather drives down a battery's capacity. So, when you draw power to start the car and run various accessories, the battery dies out. Older batteries often suffer from this problem more than newer ones, but newer ones do deal with the issue.
