Car Won't Start: It Could Be Your Battery
Batteries are put under a lot of strain in cold weather - and are one of the most common causes of cars not starting.
If you hear a faint whining noise when you turn the key, but if your starter motor doesn't turn over (the car 'coming to life'), it's probably a flat battery.
You might not hear anything if the battery is totally flat, or the cables have come loose.
Two other signs include the ignition lights on the dashboard failing to illuminate, and the car refusing to unlock with the central locking.
If you desperately need to get moving, you can attempt to jump start your car. This does however mean you'll need jump cables and another vehicle.
