2009 Ford Focus SE:I tried starting my car while it was 2 degrees Fahrenheit, and it wouldn't start. There was only a clicking noise followed by the radio/heat coming on. Is this a battery issue?

Turn your headlights on. If they don't burn bright it's your battery.

yes it is a battery issue...old batteries will not have the COLD cranking amps~ ...or for 25 bucks get a "battery blanket"....in any event assure the negative connection to the frame is shiny after being cleaned off with your wirebrush...and the 1/0 battery cable leading to the motorblock too (near the alternator)~....as this is the "thirsty for the amps" connection for your starter~ ____ https://www.google.com/#q=battery+blanket&tbm=shop
