‘Tis the Season
- Winter is the most common time for car batteries to start acting up.
- Fluids evaporate during hot summer months creating corrosion, leading you to a dead battery by winter time.
- Cold Cranking Amp (CCA) capacity drops as the temperature drops.
- Older car batteries have a hard time holding current in cold weather.
- Warmer climates are better suited for a car battery to operate at its maximum capacity.
- Routine car battery maintenance can keep you from being stranded in the cold.
You are most likely to experience battery failure. Avoid the hassle of a dead battery, especially during the rougher winter months, by taking these steps:
