To the Extreme: When Car Batteries Go Bad

Most car batteries are designed to handle a large range of hot and cold temperatures. Your vehicle's battery is rated in CCA or Cold-Cranking Amperage. Over time, batteries can be worn down by increasingly cold temperatures. Without the proper amperage, your car battery won't be able to charge the alternator to turn the engine. You may notice this happening during extremely cold mornings as well.

If you live in an extremely hot area, you may also experience issues with boiling temperatures. Due to the chemicals and casings of batteries, extremely hot temperatures may heat up your battery and cause acid leaks. If you notice crusted acid around the connectors, it likely means that you have issues with extreme hot temperatures and need to get a replacement battery fast.

For all issues with your batteries, you can talk to a car mechanic at Tyler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram located in Niles, MI. Our service center has great rates on car batteries and repairs.
