      Why Do Car Batteries Die in the Cold?
      It happens every year: the days get shorter, the nights get longer and we bundle up and prepare for the long, cold months ahead. When it comes to automotive issues, winter is sometimes an especially challenging time. When the mercury drops, it can

If you drive a car, truck or SUV with a traditional internal combustion engine, the battery in your ride is particularly vulnerable in lower temperatures.  Most vehicle batteries are 12-volts, and they consist of six cells. Each cell houses two plates—one made of lead, the other of lead dioxide. The plates are submerged in sulfuric acid, which acts as a catalyst, causing a chemical reaction between the plates producing about two volts of energy per cell. With six cells, you get twelve volts of power. 
      Your battery may start acting up when the temperature drops, so check out these

The chemicals inside the battery move slower at lower temperatures, putting stress on the battery and making it difficult to provide sufficient starting power to your vehicle. If you park your vehicle outdoors, you may notice a significant decrease in battery power if the temperature dips below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, especially if your battery is older than three years and you don’t plan on starting your vehicle for several days or weeks at a time.  Let’s face it: vehicle batteries are expensive, and the added stress of cold temperatures can shorten their lifespan. To prolong battery life and save cash, it’s a good idea to invest in a

Let the experts at the NAPA Network help you save money and get the most out of your vehicle battery by safely disconnecting and storing it this winter.  Disconnecting a Car Battery for Storage
      So, you decided to disconnect your car battery for storage this winter. Great idea! Troubleshooting battery problems in cold weather is a headache, but it can also lessen the overall life of your battery, costing you a lot of money in the long run. If you park your vehicle outdoors or in a garage with minimal insulation, it’s a good idea to remove and store the vehicle battery if you don’t plan on driving it more than once every two weeks during the winter. 
      First, you need to safely disconnect your vehicle’s battery. Before you begin, make sure you’re using

You’ll also need a link hidden, please login to view that fits the bolts of your battery—your owner’s manual should have this information available. Turn off your vehicle. Never attempt to disconnect your battery with the engine running.  With the engine off, locate the terminals of your vehicle battery. They may have black and red caps on them, black for negative and red for positive. The negative terminal is labeled with a negative symbol and the positive terminal is labeled with a positive symbol. Remove the plastic caps and locate the negative terminal. Using the wrench, loosen the nut and bolt, then remove the connector cable from the terminal. Repeat this process with the positive terminal.  Now you’re ready to safely remove and store your battery!

      The battery is a vital component of your vehicle, but it is also sometimes a volatile one. The chemicals that provide the crucial reaction that powers your vehicle and its systems are extremely caustic and dangerous. Neglecting proper car battery storage for winter can cause significant damage to your battery and anything nearby, so let NAPA Auto Parts help you plan for properly storing your battery. 
      Before you store it, take the time to carefully clean any

Never store a vehicle battery on a high shelf above your head. Make sure to routinely check the batteries while in storage to ensure no fluids are leaking and top off any fluids that have evaporated. While some drivers want to disconnect and store their vehicle batteries, others may not have the time or a good space to store them. Fortunately, NAPA Auto Parts offers a great selection of battery maintainers, battery conditioners and trickle chargers. These low-profile devices not only charge and maintain your vehicle battery while not in use, but they also help break down any buildup of sulfur crystals on the plates.

      With each new season, we’re presented with different challenges and different sales opportunities. It’s up to us to capitalize on these opportunities, and help boost our margins and keep our stores in the green. So, as the temperature starts to drop outside, let’s take a look at what we can do inside our stores to boost add-on sales, and what trends we can expect to see in the coming months.
      ‘Tis the season
      The first category we’re going to look at is what I call “winter seasonal products.” These are the types of products that only come out to the shelf during this season. Ice scrapers, snow brushes, winter hats and gloves all fall into this category. Many stores will display these types of products on an end cap, or a special cardboard stand or display.
      There are lots of opportunities to get add-on sales with this category. If a customer is buying a snow brush or ice scraper, ask them if they’d also like to pick up a pair of winter gloves, or a jug of de-icing windshield-washer fluid. Every little bit will help to boost your margins.
      There are some products that fit into this category, but they stay out on the shelf all year long. One example would be fuel and oil additives. While these additives can be found all year long, they’ll likely move off the shelf faster in the winter. Why? Colder temperatures are especially harsh on vehicles that run on diesel fuel. When the temperature drops, diesel fuel can gel. This can lead to clogged fuel lines and filters. That’s why many diesel owners will pick up fuel-system treatments in the winter.
      Batteries
      Battery sales tend to jump twice a year: when the temperatures climb in the summer, and again when they drop in the winter. Cold weather takes a toll on batteries and electrical systems. Engine oil is thicker when it’s cold, so the engine is harder to start than it would be at warmer temperatures. On top of that, the colder temperatures will sap the cranking power the battery has to offer. There’s a good reason why batteries are rated for cranking amps (CA) and cold-cranking amps (CCA). The temperature outside has a big impact on how much power the battery has to offer.
      When it comes to selling batteries, always remember to offer dielectric compound, as well as the fiber insulators that slide over the battery posts and sit underneath the battery cables. I’ve also had good luck selling small, compact battery jump packs to customers in the past. These small battery jumpers aren’t much bigger than a cellphone, but they pack a big power punch when you need it most. They’re relatively inexpensive, but they offer some serious peace of mind.
      Wiper Blades
      I’ve talked before about how I dreaded two types of days in the parts store: heavy snowfall and heavy rainfall. Why? Because I knew that we would be selling a ton of wiper blades on those days. It also meant that I would be installing all of those wiper blades outside, so I’d either end up soaking wet from the rain, or frozen stiff from the snow and ice. Worst of all, our margin on wiper blades was pretty thin, so our store numbers wouldn’t fare very well that day.
      So, what did we do to boost our margins? We would do our best to upsell the better wiper blades, as well as offering washer fluid and other add-ons along with the wipers. For SUVs and wagons, we would always ask them about the rear wiper blade. Experience has taught me that many customers will neglect that small rear wiper blade, so it’s important to ask.
      Our final tip in this category is to tell your customers about the benefits of using a washer fluid with a de-icing formula. Many customers aren’t aware of how this type of washer fluid can help them day-to-day, and it’s an easy add-on sale.
      Belts & Hoses
      This final category will only represent a small percentage of your winter sales, but it’s important to be aware of what you can expect. Belts and hoses can become brittle, crack or break altogether when the temperature drops. Modern modular hoses usually will have plastic connectors or tees that are especially susceptible to the cold, and if they break, the customer will need to buy the entire hose. It’s important for your customers to check belts and hoses for signs of wear or damage before the winter weather hits. It’s much better to catch this sort of issue early, rather than wait until the vehicle breaks down on the side of the road.
      I had a few customers who would stock up on detailing supplies once the weather started to turn. They told me that they would wax their car before the snow came so the paint would be better-protected from the elements. These days, ceramic coatings are available that do an even better job of protecting the paint from the hazards seen during the winter.
      So, take a walk around your store and think about what you expect to see selling this winter. Come up with a game plan for how you can maximize your sales numbers heading into the winter season, and what types of add-on sales opportunities you can find.
