Take your battery to Napa and have them test the cold cranking amps, they'll tell you whether or not you need a new battery

The one with the highest CCA rating you can find in the size you need for your vehicle.

You might need to purchase a bigger battery with more cold cranking amps. Below zero weather will probably require a battery with 800 or more cold cranking amps.

You need all the cranking amps your battery can supply in cold weather. Check your battery connections, take them off and clean them and reinstall and tighten. You can use dilectric grease to keep them from corroding. Once you have them reinstalled, and TIGHT, then try to crank it over in cold weather. If it still won't crank then your battery has a weak cell and is probably on it's way out. Make sure you have a fully charged battery when you are trying to start it. Warm weather does not take as many crankign amps from your battery so that is why it is fine then and not in cold weather Also check your automatic choke or throttle body position, the flap should be almost closed when starting in cold weather, as a test disconnect the air intake tube from the throttle body and cover the opening with your hand while someone turns the engine over, if it fires right up then that is the problem, never use the gas pedal when starting cold it defeats the purpose, you need to starve the engine for air when starting in cold weather.

in cold weather you may need to eat more food than in warm weather

Check your battery first.. If it is fine, you might need to replace your cold start injector timing switch. Fairly expensive, but should work.

Alligators are cold-blooded. that means their blood is cold and they can survive in cold weather, but they NEED warm weather, that's why they bask in the sun. Hope this helps :P

if you are in cold weather you do.

No you sometimes need to charge your battery or get a boost if you battery runs low. Leaving your lights on for instance will totally drain the battery.

User Avatar

depends on were you live cold weather or areas you want a battery with more cold cranking amps (cca),more is always better.You should be able to get a descent battery at your local auto store for 50 bucks.Anyhow 500 cca should be plenty.

no but the phat bass boost won't work. that is the active part. the pickups are passive and don't need a battery

cool weather, also live through cold weather

The most common cause for hard starts is cold weather. Batteries have different amounts of cold cranking amps. You may need to get a bigger battery with more cold cranking amp power.

Yes, rabbits can get too cold, but this is rare as they can tolerate cold weather better than hot weather, and that's why pet rabbits in hot weather need bottles of ice :)

No, penguins do not like hot weather but they need cold weather so they can live.

'Warm blooded'. They do not need to bask in sunlight to boost their metabolism.

If you're talking about a car battery - every five years or so. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have had vehicle batteries last for 3.8 years / dead cell / replaced under battery warranty 8 years / weak when the weather turned cold 6 and 1/2 years / dead cell ( original Motorcraft battery in my vehicle ) I'm still using my replacement Motorcraft battery ( since February 2002 , now over 12 years , works fine ) * but that's not to say I go somewhere and come out to find that I need a boost because the battery has a dead cell

No. They are better suited to cold weather than most other dogs, but they do well in other climates too.

Check your cold cranking amp from battery. May need a larger battery with more amps. Also you need a tune up
