Make Sure the Summer Heat Hasn’t Ruined Your Car Battery

Summer weather can be unpredictable, and extreme heat is common. When the heat gets too extreme, it could actually destroy your Honda Accord’s battery. This could be avoided by visiting our Honda dealer in Orange County to have your battery inspected. That way we can ensure your vehicle is in top shape, so you can avoid your battery dying while you’re out on the road.

If the voltage regulator in your vehicle’s charging system is not working properly, it will only use a high charging rate. When this happens overtime, your battery will end up being destroyed because the excess heat will cause the battery fluid to evaporate, which could damage its internal structure.

A big automotive myth is that the cold winter weather is what destroys your vehicle’s battery, but this isn’t the case. The summer heat is what’s really doing the damage. Here are a few tips you can follow to get the most out of the battery life in your 2012 Accord sedan:

  • Make sure your electric system is charging at the correct rate. You don’t want to have your battery being overcharged; this is just as bad as under charging.
  • Does you battery need to get topped off? Make sure that it’s being checked on a regular basis, especially when the weather is extremely hot. If necessary, you can add distilled water.
  • Keep your battery clean. Visit our service department where our technicians will clean the battery for you. Having too much dirt and debris could lower the battery life or reduce its effectiveness.

Summer is over, so make sure your battery is still running strong.
