During cold weatherDuring cold weather  - Battery - Maintenance - Mitsubishi Lancer Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Lancer

The capacity of the battery is reduced at low temperatures.

This is an inevitable result of its chemical and physical properties.

This is why a very cold battery, particularly one that is not fully charged, will only deliver a fraction of the starter current which is normally available.

We recommend you to have the battery checked before the start of cold weather and, if necessary, have it charged or replaced.

This does not only ensure reliable starting, but a battery which is kept fully charged also has a longer life.
