It’s true that extreme heat and cold both have detrimental consequences on battery life and performance, but each has a different effect on battery operation. Prolonged cold spells can make a vehicle harder to start, and the battery simply may not be able to supply enough initial power to meet the elevated demand.

Hot weather can cause the acid that surrounds the battery components to break down to the point that it’s no longer capable of promoting and maintaining the chemical reactions that are necessary for proper battery function.

If your vehicle has been hard to crank up lately, the fault could lie with the battery or another ignition system part. The team at Preferred Preowned North is here to diagnose and fix the problem for you, so don’t hesitate to stop by our location in Colorado Springs, CO for help before it gets any worse.
