Does Overheating or Freezing Temperatures Affect Batteries?

In short, yes, extreme temperatures may cause your battery to fail when you need it the most. There are a lot of reasons why this happens, and it may not happen with your battery depending on its CCA rating and quality. However, some lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries do have issues with colder temperatures. This is because your battery has to work harder during colder weather to generate a charge.

Whereas in the summer, you may experience extreme heat that causes the chemicals to boil and spill over onto the connectors, creating corrosive acid leakage. While you can clean off battery acid with a can of soda, you should still probably replace the battery before going for a drive as it's only a matter of time before the battery can't hold a charge anymore.

If you need help with your battery, you should talk to the service team at Warrensburg Ford to see what batteries are best for your vehicle.
