Care for your Vehicle Battery in Cold Weather

Tip 1: Prepare Your Battery For Winter

Your battery has a tough job during the cold winter months. Your vehicle’s engine requires more power to start when the temperatures are colder and those temperatures make it harder for your battery to provide power.

Before winter gets an icy grip on your battery, have your electrical system tested, including your battery and alternator. Also, check the battery using a voltmeter to make sure it’s in good condition. Your voltmeter should read 12.4 volts or higher. Keep the battery fully charged throughout the winter using a battery charger or maintainer, especially if you make frequent short drives (less than a mile). 

Tip 2: Check Car Battery Connections

It’s important to properly maintain the components around your battery too. Make sure cables, posts and fasteners are in good shape, and check battery connections to confirm they are clean and tight. Use a stiff wire brush to clean off any corrosion and secure the battery to the battery tray to prevent excessive vibration.
