The battery in your vehicle is largely responsible for starting your vehicle up each day. It also helps run systems such as your air conditioning, lights, and radio. When the temperature outside becomes extremely hot or cold, your car battery can become affected.

Extremely hot temperatures will cause some water to evaporate from the electrolyte in your battery. The terminals in your battery will corrode at a faster pace than normal. With reduced electrical power, your vehicle will suffer.

Cold temperatures will cause your battery to work even harder in order to start your vehicle and run everything. Insufficient power can really put some strain on the various systems in your vehicle. It's a good idea to keep your vehicle in the garage at night if you have the ability. You should also let your vehicle warm up for a bit before driving it.
