Extreme heat and cold can wreak havoc on your car. Both can harm your battery, in particular. The team at Dallas Collision Center wants to help you keep your vehicle running year-round here in Dallas.

In extreme cold, your battery has to work much harder to turn over the engine. The cold makes it harder for the battery to produce that power. You should have your entire electrical system tested before winter. If you make a lot of frequent short trips, investing in a battery tester for at home is a good idea.

On the other hand, heat can kill the longevity of your battery. The hot temperature speeds up corrosion, which is one of the greatest enemies of any vehicle. For this reason, it is also important to have your battery tested before the hottest months of the year. Replace a weak battery before you find yourself with a car that will not start.
