Cold Weather Battery Tips
Cold temperatures can have an adverse effect on your battery. In Charleston, we do not have much excessively cold weather. It does however get cold and sometimes freezes.
These are a few tips to protect your battery:
- Bring your vehicle in for a complimentary battery charge test. On request, we can check the entire system including the alternator, starter and electrical system.
- Have your battery terminal serviced. Dirty and corroded battery terminals cause excessive resistance and can cause premature battery failure. We will clean the terminals and add a protectant to help prevent corrosion.
- If possible, park your vehicle in a garage during cold weather.
