Winter Battery Tips
Through our dealership at Roadsport Chrysler, you can shop for the latest models from our selection and access helpful tips about vehicle ownership. We are always looking to support our customers in achieving their transportation needs and wish to ensure that our clients have a seamless experience. Visit us today and let us help you find your dream vehicle or maintain your exciting one.

 

Drive Your Vehicle Regularly
Starting your vehicle isn't enough to charge its battery if you are not driving it, making it crucial to have a lengthy drive every few weeks to keep the battery charged. Also, avoid leaving any electrical systems on if you are not planning to drive your vehicle since that can drain the battery.

 

Check Your Battery’s Condition Regularly
A regular battery voltage check can help you determine the health of your battery. Still, you should be aware that your vehicle's battery might have issues if it's experiencing added stress from the electric system or surrounding elements. It's also possible that your battery might have acid corrosion on the terminals, causing connection issues, which are easily detectable during an inspection.

 

Park Inside If Possible
Your vehicle's battery can have performance issues if it reaches extreme temperatures, making it a good idea to park inside whenever possible. However, if your battery is having issues starting the engine in winter but not summer, it's likely weak and requires replacement soon.

 

Use Battery Tender
During storage or cold winter months, consider plugging your vehicle's battery into a battery tender to keep it charged and ready. Not only will the battery tender keep the battery voltage at optimal levels, but it will also maintain its operational temperature for easy starts during cold winters.
