How Extreme Temperatures Damage a Car Battery

If you live in a region where the temperatures go from extreme cold to hot each year, the stress on the car battery is severe. These are some of the reasons the car battery may be close to failing.

The extreme heat is really pushing the car battery to the limits. The liquids are evaporating, leaving less behind to cause the chemical reaction needed to be able to turn over the car and run all those components you enjoy while driving. In the severe cold, the opposite is happening to the car battery. The liquids now are becoming solid, and that means they cause the casing to expand and cause damage to the cells inside.

Once damage has occurred inside the casing, it is permanent and you will need to seek a battery replacement. Bring your car to Toyota of Laredo so the team can check your battery to make certain it will not fail on the road.
