A strong battery is necessary for starting any car. In cold weather the battery can be drained of energy, so be sure the cables are attached securely and free of corrosion, and there is sufficient clear, odorless water inside. Take caution when handling a battery; it can produce explosive gases. Do not smoke, create a spark or light a match near a battery, and wear protective glasses and gloves.
