True or False: To have a better chance of successfully starting a vehicle in very cold weather, one should turn on the headlights to "warm" the battery.
No kidding. Yea, lets turn on the lights when its a -40 below outside like it was in some areas of the far north this morning, and lower the batteries strength even further.The Weather Channel has had this tip on all day. They attribute the tip to AAA. I am more than a bit skeptical.

You will Quinch your thirst better :roll:
It doesn't even hold up in theory. The amount of current pulled by the headlights pales in significance to the inrush current pulled by the starter motor. So if you want to warm up the battery, start the car.Like so many things; what sounds good in theory is crap in the real world.opcorn:
