Car was losing power during driving, next morning it doesn t start?

While driving home from work 2am in the cold (was 17 degrees) i noticed my windshield wipers were acting slower(was snowing) and my window was going up very slowly. Next morning i go to start my car and it wont start. It clicks like a sound of a dead battery. But i just bought a new battery an odyssey that was 280$

While driving home from work 2am in the cold (was 17 degrees) i noticed my windshield wipers were acting slower(was snowing) and my window was going up very slowly. Next morning i go to start my car and it wont start. It clicks like a sound of a dead battery. But i just bought a new battery an odyssey that was 280$ only 3 months ago.. so i dont see how it could of been my battery..? Could it possibly been because it was so cold out and now just needs a jump and im good? Or could it be something?

Other answer:

The alternator isn't charging the battery and the battery power was drained until the battery is nearly dead. Isn't the red battery charge warning light on? Jump staring the motor isn't going to work because the battery is dead and the alternator isn't working. Charge the battery with a portable battery charger set to 12 volts, 10 amps, for 6 hours and then drive straight to an auto parts sore to have them test the battery and charging system. It's a free service.You car will only run for 30 minutes if you don't have the headlights on or start and stop the motor more than a couple of times.

You need to make sure the alternator is ok. Normally the alternator will keep the car running even if the battery is discharged, Test both the battery and the alternator before you spend money. A digital multimeter is cheap and effective. See link for really easy test procedures.

Did you check the alternator?
A new battery needs a working alternator to keep it charged.

Maybe the battery not getting charged up bro. Could be the regulator/alternator needs a look at.
