Although the temperature underneath your hood can get quite warm, you don't want your battery to reach levels that are too high as damage could occur. Heat can cause the fluid inside the battery's cells to evaporate, which can result in your battery not operating as it should.

While at Colby Dodge Chrysler Jeep, someone can test your battery to determine how much longer it could last, especially if you've been driving in the summer months or if you've noticed signs that it could be failing. Keep in mind that most batteries can last at least three years depending on your driving habits in Colby, KS, and the temperatures in your area.

Try to keep your battery charged during the summer months so that you're not sitting on the side of the road. Some batteries have cells that can be refilled if the liquid evaporates. If possible, try to keep your vehicle out of the direct sunlight to keep the temperature as low as possible.
