You should find out how your car battery does in the cold this weekend.
CAA Manitoba suggests a lot of us won’t find out until Monday morning.
Liz Kulyk says thats because a lot of people don’t drive a lot on the weekend.
“So when they go to start on Monday and haven’t driven their car, if the battery is even a slight bit old, we’re talking three to five years, the chance that it might not to be able to turn over is pretty high.”
Kulyk’s advice is pretty simple. Check your cord to make sure it works and plug it in.
She says they are anticipating dead battery calls Monday morning to double.
Temperatures this weekend are expected to hover around the -20 mark with the windchill.
