Taking Care of Your Battery in the Summer

One of the biggest causes of death in the car battery is extreme temperatures. If there is a lot of heat or freezing weather, then that is going to wear the battery out quickly. Even if the vehicle is not running, just having the vehicle out in the elements is going to drain the battery.

Sometimes car batteries die in the summer due to the evaporation of the electrolytes. Therefore, you are going to have to take a few preventative measures in order to make sure that the vehicle is going to last throughout the year.

Fortunately, one thing that you can do when it comes to electrolytes is to check it out during the hot months of summer and then add more to the battery when you see it getting low. This can definitely help you avoid a dead battery in the summer and keep your vehicle running.

Winter weather also brings challenges. To keep your car running all year, we recommend routine maintenance at Honda of Stevens Creek or another trusted auto mechanic.
