My Ride: E46 Imola Red
Red face Car wont Start after Cold Weather

My Car has been sitting outside in cold weather for the past 2 weeks and I think it may have affect the battery. Having all sort of electrical warning light go off and all sorts of unfamiliar sounds. I haven't jump start the car but will do so when I get home. Hope this will fix the problem. Any advice?

If you turn the key and it makes a clicking noise w/ the dash and headlights flashing, its the battery.
