Central to your car's operation, the battery provides the power that starts and keeps the car going. It also acts to keep the power free of spikes by acting as a electrical filtering device, and provides the minimum electrical power levels needed to make sure your car's electrical devices and systems work correctly. Batteries are temperature-sensitive and a battery's optimal operating temperature range is 40 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperature also affects your battery's charging rate. To compensate for temperature variations during battery charges, car charging circuits include battery temperature sensors. The sensor is located on a battery terminal or the case. The battery sensor’s function is simple: if it senses a temperature variation, it orders the battery control module, or the computer control system in a car or truck, to change the charging rate. For example, if the sensor senses the battery is cold, it will request an increased charge rate from the alternator.
