Below 0F temps and it won't turn over, starter doesn't even

Customer Question

Below 0F temps and it won't turn over , starter doesn't even act like it's getting juice. Lights gauges , everything else has full power. Battery was on a tender even though it was full but because of the cold I wanted as much help as possible. Works fine @ 5-10F and up .
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: Headlights, tail, instrument. Heater fan blows full ect..
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2004 FX4 , new style
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Different battery , cleaned all connectors , just stated this a couple weeks ago, but was fine once it warmed a little , now cold spell and it's dead.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: It sits outside mostly , I ride motorcycle 98% so a lot of sitting on gravel (moisture)
