Hot Weather Weakens Your Battery

Your car battery plays a key role in the operation of your vehicle. The battery provides the voltage needed to crank the engine, and it supplies electricity to many functions in the vehicle like lights, entertainment systems. Cold temperatures and hot days can take a toll on your battery.

Kansas City-area drivers know they need smooth and powerful starts in all weather conditions. In cold weather, the engine needs a strong boost from the battery to get the oil and parts moving. The cold can expose a weak battery, and frequently batteries fail in winter. The cause may be the heat that came before. The hot weather causes battery fluid evaporation and weakens the charge.

At Victory Ford, we understand the stresses on your battery and charging system from extreme heat and cold. We maintain batteries and provide high-quality replacements when you need them. Call or visit us for regular maintenance and your replacement battery needs.
