A snowmobile can be driven off-road in the winter.
I had a situation where the security module(under the passenger seat) was drawing from the battery when the car was sitting. I removed it and the draw on the battery stopped, had to buy a new battery because the draw depleted the battery so bad over the winter that the cells died.
Remember that this driven by sunlight and there is less as we go into Fall and Winter.
no, I don't.
Yes. it might be, i am unsure, never driven it myself
All cars can be driven without a thermostat. The thermostat is used to heat the car in winter by forcing the water temperature up.
Not it it is a good battery. I suggest if you are going to let it set for an entire winter, disconnect the positive battery cable. It should be fine if it is a good battery that is fully charged. You might want to put a charger on it next spring just before trying to start the engine after you reconnect the positive cable.
No. Freezing a battery will damage it. have you tested it? The worst environment for any battery is COLD. That is why there are so many problems with car batteries in the Winter. If the electrolyte in the battery freezes, it will usually expand and crack the battery case or distort the plates in the battery
Sure you can remove it and store it.
Keep it charged and it will not freeze. A 1 amp trickle charger works well on a stored battery in the winter.
Check the battery in the remote.
5w30 is recommended for year round use by nissan. if the outside temperature stays above 0 then 10w30 can be used.
On my 1998 Buick the valve was located near the battery. Mine was damaged during a hurried winter battery change.
I own a 2001 maxima se and put 1995 rims on it during the winter. You can do the oposit.
Because temperature affects the efficiency of a battery
Change it. Batteries do tend to fail in winter, they have to work that much harder. It probably has a dead cell in it. Take it to an auto parts store, they will usually check them for free - besides, you'll need to bring it in as a "core" trade that can be deducted off the price of a new battery. Lead acid batteries have a long life if properly treated. An old battery will loose is capacity, especially when cold. There could be a problem with the charging circuit via the alternator? Over time the plates corrode and can internally short, the dielectric may need topping up. Perhaps something is discharging the battery that you might not be aware of? The radio? A light? If the battery is over four years old, replace it.
By "juiced" I suppose you mean "charged". If you are using a battery charger to keep the battery charged and there are no other problems with the electrical system, you are causing unnecessary harm to the battery. On the other hand, if you do have problems you might want to find out why the battery is discharging before you go to the extreme measure of putting a charger on the battery. A "trickle charger" (very low amperage; 1/4 amp or less) could be used if the vehicle is not started very often, but they aren't typically available. On the other hand, if you're just using the engine heater plug that comes with many vehicles, that is not typically connected to a battery charger and is used to keep the engine from getting too cold during the most severe winter nights. The STOCK engine heater or even an after-market engine heater can be quite helpful for those engines that are difficult to start in severe winter weather. While battery capacity significantly diminishes in severe cold weather, it should still be enough to start the engine if everything else is functioning properly.
eather the battery has a dead cell or if it is farly new and was dead for a period of time in the winter will kill the battery and cause it not to charge.... or it could be the altinator that is bad and not charging
Not both. Disconnect the NEGATIVE post.
As long as you keep them charged you do not have to remove them. A fully charged battery will not freeze, but a dead battery will.
Any type of car battery that is long lasting such as Duralast can be very good for you and your car because it will save you money and energy.
In the winter, your car's oil starts to congeal making the car harder to start. It takes more amperage than in summer to run the starter. Three things could be happening. First: you could be using an inadequate battery. You could be using a battery at the low end of the amperage range that will start your car. You need to get a more powerful battery with greater amperage. Second: batteries slowly wear out. As pieces of the electrodes wear out and fall to the bottom of the battery, the battery looses amperage and must be replaced with one of adequate size. Third: you could have a wire with some insulation worn. Electricity from the battery can slowly leak out of your battery. Enough can remain to start your car in summer but not in winter. You can check your wires for worn insulation.
Instead being driven off by the rebellion.With winter forced began to doubt the victory was possible.
Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Loose connection at starter? Bad ground cable?
