You might have loose connections or low cells on your battery. Check the cells on the battery and if they are low fill them with distilled water only. Also make sure your alternator is giving the battery a good charge.

If you leave a battery in car for the winter and not turn it over will it kill the battery?

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.

Can you charge a battery by freezing the battery?

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

Your truck battery won't hold a charge?

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.

Does plugging a truck battery in keep it juiced?

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.

How do you stop a car battery from dying in the winter?

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.
