Your battery is not charging? 1st check the connections at the battery. Make sure they are clean and tight. If not, the battery will not charge properly. If you can still drive the explorer, bring it to a parts store, where most will do a free check of the charging system to see what's wrong. If it can't be driven, remove the battery and bring that in for a free check to make sure it is ok. If the battery checks out ok, then you most likely need to replace the alternator.

Why are you using a gel battery?? you shuld only be using a starting battery. Gel batteries, when weather gets really cold, will die out and cannot be recharged. They are not like a typical starting battery made for the vehicles large drain when starting.
