Sounds as if you have a poor battery cable connection somewhere in the system. Check all the connections to ensure they are tight and clean. If that doesn't help you will need to check the starter draw to see if the starter is going out, this requires a clamp on ampmeter and should go to an automotive shop for diagnostics.
Why a connection during winter?
You have different metals being bolted together that will contract differently at different temperatures.
Good Luck

My 2000 cadillac deville wont start. I bought a new battery. New alternator and a new ground wire under the hood. My starter was tested and is good. Ive been trying to jump it off andnothing will come on


On your car the crank circuit includes a crank fuse, the theft deterrent relay, the key switch, and the PCM in addition to the starter itself.
All of these components would need to be tested to find the problem.

Sometimes wont start the next day it will and it has a new battery


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
