How do cooler temperatures affect my car battery?

As the weather changes, we forget that the most damage happens to our car battery in the summer heat. Summertime is harshest on an automotive battery. Often the damage done to a battery happens when it’s hot, but the failure may not happen until it is cold. Heat accelerates corrosion and leads to electrolyte loss that weakens the battery’s energy levels. Fuel injection systems may mask a weaker battery.

When the temperatures drop suddenly, colder temperatures reduce cranking power available. When this is combined with thicker motor oil and slower cranking, the battery may not have enough juice to start your vehicle. We are here for you when that happens, whether you need a jump start or an on the spot battery installation.

Dead battery - excessive heat

Excessive Heat Advisory

A DEAD BATTERY?

Dead Battery? Could be. There is an excessive heat advisory in effect for southern Arizona. Phoenix hit 114º today and Tucson, AZ is 111º today.

Take precautions if traveling outside or on the road today. Excessive heat can lead to mechanical failure on your vehicle. Most common heat induced problems are the following:

  1. Dead Battery – a dead battery that needs a jump start or a new car battery installed.
  2. Flat Tire  – Extreme heat effects tire pressure and could result in a flat tire from additional flexibility in worn tires.
  3. Coolant leak or coolant failure – you may need to get your vehicle to a service center. A coolant problem could result in engine damage and lead to a call for a tow truck to an automotive repair facility.

Dugger’s Emergency Road Services will help you escape the Phoenix and Tucson heat if you get stranded. Our qualified technicians come to you and help address the issue on the spot. New automotive battery installs, flat tire change, emergency fuel delivery and windshield chip repair.
