Frigid temperatures and your car battery

Cold temperatures are expected for the rest of the week that could impact your car. Prolonged exposure to the cold could drain your battery. The number one sign that your battery may need to be replaced is difficulty starting the engine. Interstate All Battery in Quincy says that not all low batteries need to be replaced but may need charged.

When you get below zero degrees or in single digits, that's when if your battery is on low state of charge or weak, that's when we are going to find out," says Jake Leigh, Interstate All Battery Manager.

Car batteries typically last four and a half years here in the Tri-States.
