I am guessing your battery is dead. Cold reduces the battery power so you need a good one when it gets cold.

Put a new battery in it already

Did you clean and tighten the battery cable ends and the battery terminals?

Yes. Placed a brand new battery in it.

Perhaps your alternator is not charging. Auto parts stores will test yours for free. If you have a volt meter you can check it yourself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGB6ZEjGm7Q
