How is a Car Battery Affected by the Temperatures Outside?

Your car battery might not last as long as you think it will. Much of this has to do with the temperatures outside. Too much heat and too much cold can cause battery problems, but for different reasons.

Hot weather can affect a battery by causing malfunctions of the charging system components. It may also lead to corrosion. Depending on the temperature under the hood, it can also cause battery fluid to evaporate entirely.

Cold weather can lead to engine oil getting thicker, making it harder for the battery to turn over. The recharge rate may be reduced and the battery capacity may drop considerably as well.
