Sounds like your battery is going bad. If it is running to cool you probably need a new thermostat. this will usually set a code for coolant temp below threshhold

For your battery low charge ,I would suggest you cleaning the terminals and the earth leads.
For not warming up rapidly, you might need to check the thermostat as it might be staying open, thus allowing the coolant to go to the radiator to be cooled down. Check the temperature setting on the thermostat as well when you take it out...you might find another thermostat with a higher setting.
