Signs of an Issue

Some signs of battery failure can be obvious while others can be subtle. The most common sign is if the vehicle becomes difficult to start. No matter what the weather or temperature is, if the vehicle is hard to start, the battery could be to blame. When the vehicle is not starting correctly, it could also be a result of the alternator or starter.

Cold Temperatures Affect the Battery

The winter weather can cause issues for your vehicle over time. Colder temperatures will cause some parts to become hard and brittle. When you drive in winter, try not to hit anything too hard or too fast. This can end up damaging or breaking parts of your vehicle. Just because you see a snow drift, you should not assume that is soft and light weight snow. The temperatures can also affect the battery of your vehicle. It will have a harder time of charging up and starting your vehicle. There also might be situations where you start the vehicle, but you will not be able to keep it running. read more
