92 Bonneville no power

i have a 92 bonniville se 3.8 liter the car ran fine then i parked it for a year n the battery froze so there was no power at all so i got it to start off a jumper box n it ran for 15 minutes then died n now no power again n i just replaced the alternator 2 years prior n the battery was just a year old i wondered if the battery warmed up would it start again or should i get anew battery

you will just have to check if it is charging
if you dont have volt meter i think you could take the alt. off and take to any parts store and they will check for you
it wouldnt hurt to take the batt. with you also however to be checked correctly you need to try and charge it, if it will take one

Once a battery freezes it is usually junk.
Does it have power if you put the jumper box back on it.
Those also have a ground block down onder the rug by the drivers side kick pannel. It is a real lousy setup and will make the car die, not start and other weird things. It is basically a connector with a bunch of spade connectors and it has a piece of metal that caoonects all teh spade connectors. They corrode and cause issues. I have fixed many of there in mid 90's GM vehicles.
