Cold Weather Is Bad for Your Battery | Wichita Auto Care

When it’s time to replace your car battery, it’s time to see the Wichita auto care experts at Tracy’s Automotive.

Friday morning was a bad start to the day. You got up late, skipped breakfast and ran out to your car only to find it had a dead battery. You were lucky. A neighbor helped you jump it and you were on your way. And the battery seemed to hold a charge, but now you’re wondering if you need a new battery even though you feel as if you bought one not so very long ago.

The problem could be the cold weather. True, Wichita’s weather hasn’t turned really cold – yet. But some of the overnight temperatures have been downright chilly. Chilly enough to cause problems for a worn battery.

Be aware that freezing temperatures can do a number on your car battery,” according to a news article quoting AAA.

Dead or dying batteries are always the biggest reasons for the tremendous surge in roadside assistance calls during a cold snap,” AAA adds. “Adding to battery woes – those always-on electronic devices and smart phones plugged into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket. Those plug-in devices are straining and draining our car batteries, warns the auto club.”
