The Honda Battery that we are discussing today is the battery located under the hood that stores electrical voltage and sends it to the engine starter as needed to turn the engine over and get it running. After the engine is running, the alternator takes over and powers the various electrical systems throughout your vehicle. The battery is what provides the electricity for your vehicle applications when the engine is not running. Modern automotive batteries are designed to last two to three years under optimum conditions but can also wear out faster in extreme conditions
The greatest threat to your battery is extreme temperature fluctuations with intense heat. If you think about it, that makes Missouri’s weather a tremendous threat for your battery because of the wild temperature fluctuations with hot summers. It also makes this time of the year a great concern for your battery. You know from living in the region that we can have temperatures into the 90s and then it's freezing all of the sudden. As we start to enter winter’s coldest January days, we are thinking about your battery and its performance since it also worked so hard last summer in Missouri’s scorching summer. Don’t risk going out to start your Honda car, truck, van, crossover, or SUV on winter’s coldest day only to find that you have a dead battery. The best way to prevent this unfortunate outcome is with a Battery Testing Service today.
