Sometimes continues trickle charge will keep the battery warm, heat is a likely problem for battery failure. Try using a battery pack

It sounds like you are either in "winter" mode, or "failsafe mode". If it's winter mode, you should see the word "winter" somewhere on the display. On my 1998 Saab 900, the winter button is on the console. Pushing it turns the winter mode on and off. If it's in failsafe mode, you're going to need to take it to a GM dealer.

Won't start

Neither. You have a dead battery. Replace it, and when you store it for the winter get a smart trickle charger and keep your new battery charged over the winter.

Hard to start in cold weather

Cold weather starts are assurred when you leave a trickle charger on the battery the whole time it sits in the garage. I would also have the battey tested to be sure it is up to snuff, and change th spark plug to a somewhat hotter one in the winter. Some folks even use high test gas in winter to assist in quick starts. If all of these suggestions fail you, get a can of starter fluid and squirt a little into the air filter just before you hit the start.
