Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
I replaced my battery due to it being -40 below zero but it still doesnt want to turn over, and my truck does have a full weather kit in it for these types of conditions.
Do u have an engine block heater included w/ your weather kit? Using a block heater should solve the problem. If u don't have one, u can purchase an oil heater that u put in the oil dipstick tube, and plug in. Keeping the oil warm will be a big help in cranking the engine over on those cold days. If the explorer was an older vehicle, I would recommend having the starter checked out, as it is possible that it could be responsible for slow cranking, and difficulty starting. Are u using the proper oil weight? Oil that is too heavy will make starting difficult in extreme cold. Make sure u aren't due for a tune up, as everything must be working well to start in such extreme cold. What is the rating of the new battery (cold cranking amps)? Hope u bought a good quality heavy duty battery.

Make sure you have good clean connections from battery to starter and ground. If all okay, you may want to have a starter draw test performed.

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.
