Once you understand the mechanics of a vehicle battery, it becomes clear why this critical element does not often respond well in extreme temperatures. While many people believe that cold weather is the primary culprit behind battery failures, it is just as common for batteries to die during extremely warm temperatures as well.

During the winter months, factors that lead to dead batteries include a reduction in capacity, the increased draw of the battery from starter motors, and the boost in the use of vehicle accessories. Conversely, during the warmer summer months, batteries are at risk of dying because of extreme heat and overcharging issues.
