Trouble starting 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS

Hello! This is my first time on a car forum, so bear with me! I’m having trouble starting my 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport in the cold. I’m in Alaska so the winters are really cold. At night it reaches the negatives. As far as I know, the previous owners didn’t have trouble starting it in the winter. Yesterday I put gas in my car and when I went to start the car it wouldn’t even try to crank. I got the car jumped later that day and it ran fine, just couldn’t turn it off until I was home. It has an almost brand new alternator and starter. I just put a brand new battery with 850 CCA in it last night. I plugged the block heater in, though I’m not positive that it’s working anymore. This morning I went to turn it on and it TRIED to crank but very slowly. Tried to jump it with an extra battery, nothing. I’m not sure if my starter might be extremely cold, engine is too cold, battery is too cold. I’m thinking I might need a battery jacket, but I’m not sure that that’ll fix the issue. Anything helps! Thank you!!

Maybe don't start your Mitsubishi Montero Sport in a hurry. You can charge and preheat the car first, and then start a fire after a few minutes. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly check and maintain the battery to maintain its normal voltage and liquid level. When the ignition fails to start, wait about 30 seconds for the engine to start again. Do not ignite continuously in case of running out of power. Hope it can help you.
