Why Extreme Temperatures Impact Battery Performance

Drivers who want their vehicles to run at peak performance should have a thorough understanding of how their battery works. As a general rule, the battery provides power through chemical reactions that occur inside of it. When the temperature gets above 80 degrees or so, it can cause those reactions to happen too quickly.

When the temperature gets below 32 degrees, it is possible for batteries to become sluggish because the chemical reactions occur too slowly. In some cases, batteries can actually become frozen. However, most batteries are designed to work at temperatures well below 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

Those who are having trouble starting their car may want to bring it to Subaru of Spokane for service. This may make it possible to diagnose the issue and either replace or fix the battery. In some cases, corrosion may impact a battery's ability to help engines turn over.
