What the Cold Weather Does to the Vehicle Battery

Cold weather comes with its own set of issues when it comes to vehicles. There is more to starting the vehicle and driving in the winter than just warming it up. For instance, starting a vehicle requires a lot of effort on the vehicle when it comes to the amperage.

When it comes to the colder weather, all of the requirements to get the vehicle going increase. One thing to look at with your battery is the number of cold cranking amps it could put out. This is an indicator of the capabilities it has in cold weather.

Even strong batteries with a lot of CCA are going to have it reduced when the temperature gets below freezing. Therefore, you want to make sure that you have a large amount of CCA for when things get cold so that it can perform well even in the cold.
