    This weather realy punishes the battery new or old,

    Try taking it off, and trickle charge it up for about 6hrs,

    replace , and no doubt it will be good for a while, but time will tell wether or not it will hold its charge, or indeed being charged up by the alternater,

    Two factors there
    1 the battery could have lost a few cells and lost efficiency,
    2 the alternater not charging

    I hope iv'e helped a little
    ps one can get a battery test free,
    but its not always conclusive
