New battery but car wont start in cold weather. The engine just doesn't turn over.

You might check your cables for corrosion inside of the insulation. This can cause a higher than normal amp draw, which will be worst in the cold.

My 2009 mini cooper shows a yellow car on what looks like a hoist and when I check the problem on the computer it says battery drain. Also my clock stops running. It has been very cold here minus 25...

It probably just needs charging. Cold weather can take a toll on older batteries, especially when they are left sitting for long periods of time. Starting the engine every day is ok, but the short run time isn't replacing the energy it took to start it.

You can try insulating your battery (cold might still get thru) or purchasing a solar recharge kit from an aftermarket company. Cold weather will affect the chemical reaction between the plates of the battery and will not put out the high amperage required. I would also recommend to keep a portable battery booster in case you cant get a solar charger. Keep the booster in a warm bag inside your trunk and always charged for when this happens. Keep it during the duration of your winter weather. In summer you will be fine.
