A litany of things could be wrong here.Lets just start with the basics.

Check your connections to the battery terminal: Are they clean and tight?

Are any of your fuses blown?

Is the battery brand new and under warranty? If so, have it and your old battery tested. (many places will do this for free)

If those are all moot points, have a diagnosis run on your car. You can take it to a dealer, and they will do it for about 80 bucks. Or you can jump on eBay or other sites and try and find an ODB diagnosis tool for about 30 bucks and you can use it whenever you want. (they arent as fancy but they do the job)

AnswerIf you have changed the battery and the engine cranks but doesn't start, the security system may be doing it's job.

Turn the key to the "RUN" position momentarily, then back to "OFF". Wait 15 minutes and repeat the process... wait 15 more minutes and repeat the process again. After the third cycle of placing the ignition key to the "RUN" position, then to "OFF" and waiting 15 minutes, the car should then start fine ...

1. Turn the ignition key from "OFF" to "RUN", then back to "OFF" 2. Wait 15 minutes

Repeat steps 1 and 2 three times... then try starting the car.

Replacing battery terminals??? How did you accomplish that. Do you mean you replaced the battery or are you referring to the battery cables? If you replaced the cables are you sure you have them connected correcty and tight. Especially the ground connection.

Why would a car battery fail in very cold wearther?

Extreme cold puts a greater strain on the battery especially when the engine is cold. The oil in the engine is cold and does not flow as well as it does when it is warm. This requires more torque to turn the engine over and that puts a strain on any battery that is not in tip top shape. You either have a battery that is weak and needs replacing or the battery has too little CCA for the engine. Get the highest Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) rated battery you can get that will fit your car. The more CCA the easier it will be for the battery to start the engine when it is cold.
