I'm betting on the battery. Is it the original battery?

I am thinking it probably is still the last couple times I have ran it, it's turned over harder then normal. Was thinking it was just because of the cold but now it won't turn over at all

Very typical behavior when a battery is at its end of life. As the above poster suggested, try jumping it with another car. If it starts the. It is most certainly the battery. Cold weather is hard on a battery.

Once started again you should seriously consider a trickle charger to keep your aging battery from going dead on those constant draws, even when not in use.
Alternately try to run it for 10 -15 min every few days or so. Driving is better than just idling, if possible.
Typically a good battery could go longer between charging but sounds like yours is weak.

I've used a battery tender for years. Currently using the same battery tender that Harley-Davidson sells for their batteries. Charges battery to full charge, and then goes into a storage mode. Never had a failure.

Diehard is right. I've been using a trickle charger for years. Spend a few bucks more for a good one,it will return good service for years to come. I can't believe that's the original battery from 2010. If your still driving it go down to Auto-Bone they will test it for zero.

When I was older, I had a Grand Marquis that had the original 10 year old battery that was still strong as ever when I traded it in.

Is that because you've been older for a while?

Thanks!
It's because only old people own and drive Mercury Grand Marquis's.
Now that I'm on social security, I drive Chargers, Mustangs and who knows, maybe a Camaro soon.
