What Extreme Temperatures Can Do to Your Car Battery

Extreme hot and cold temperatures will cause your car’s battery life to drop significantly. Our service center at Thompson's Honda sees the problems all of the time. When you see how extreme temperatures can impact your battery, it makes it easier to focus on protecting your battery from the hot and cold weather.

When you expose your car to extremely hot temperatures, it causes chemical reactions to occur faster within the battery. You will notice the life of the battery drop, causing you to replace it sooner than it usually anticipated. Extreme temperatures can also result in internal corrosion.

If you expose your car to extremely cold temperatures, chemical reactions become slower. You may have to use twice as much energy inside the battery to create a reaction. The best solution is to keep your car in the garage when you are experiencing hot or cold temperatures in Terre Haute.
