Unfortunately, automotive batteries can be impacted by excessive heat in the summer as well as extreme cold in the winter. If you’re worried about the effectiveness and performance of your vehicle’s battery, a check-up and service visit with the team at Lithia Subaru of Fresno in Fresno, CA is definitely in order.

The battery’s internal components are surrounded by a weak acid solution that can degrade or evaporate in hot weather. Unless this solution is regularly checked and refilled during the summer months, damage or failure of the battery may occur.

Cold weather causes an entirely different set of battery problems. Due to the composition of the material inside the battery, the available start-up amperage is naturally lower in cooler temperatures, and the battery’s power may be reduced even further by the use of lighting, wipers, and other energy-draining automotive components.
