other experts know much more than me, but it could very well be the battery. We don't get much cold here, (although I grew up in NZ with it), but it will certainly wreak havok with a battery that isn't 100%. Do you know how old the battery is?? Either way, 1st step is to get a brand new good battery and see what happens!
Having said all that, your other issues do perhaps point to something else going on that may have gotten worse, so I'd have to be honest and say don't get your hopes up too much, just in case it's a nasty one.
But, assuming the battery is older than the time you've had the car, it's worth trying that first, I'd be quietly hopeful myself.
Good luck and don't sell it!! You may well regret it.
