How Temperatures Make it Harder for Batteries to Work Correctly

Selling vehicles is only part of what we do at Blue Knob Auto. In addition, we want to teach you about the cars or trucks that you buy. You may have noticed that batteries tend to die during the winter months. This is because batteries can be negatively impacted by extreme temperatures.

Therefore, it is also possible for batteries to die or otherwise become inefficient during the summer. The age of a battery can also play a role in determining whether it will work properly during times of extreme heat or cold. This is because it will need to deliver extra power for the car to start.

It is worth noting that leaving your interior lights on generally doesn't harm a battery as much as the weather does. In extremely cold temperatures, motor oil can get thicker, which can make it even harder for the car to start properly.
