What Does Cold Weather Do To Your Car?

When the temperature drops below freezing your car becomes susceptible to a number of problems, most notably with the charging and starting systems. These lower temperatures cause your battery to operate at about 66% efficiency. If the battery was weak to begin with, that can lead to the dreaded dead battery on a cold winter morning.

Batteries are directly related to starters and alternators, so if your battery isn’t functioning at full capacity it will put a drain on your alternator and starter, which can cause them to fail as well.
