Dodges have alot of electrical issues. Most of the time it is a bad wire or it has grounded out.

Cold weather makes batteries weak. Your battery may be on the way out. I would charge it and have it load tested to see if it is bad. If the battery is good then maybe your radio is faulty and drawing too much power when off. It draws some to keep the settings and the clock running.
