I'm A mechanic. And I was involved in a problem like this. With the same kind of vehicle.
And Finally a Found the problem. On my Case was the Coolant temperature sensor.

Maybe on your case is diferent but You don't loss nothing Trying .
In the morning Try to start the Vehicle if no run.
Go at front under hood, and disconnect the ECT Engine coolant sensor.
Is located at the front of the Engine Beside of the Thermostat housing.
After you disconnect go try to start if run ok. Replace the sensor with a new one.

I hope this help on your problem.

Thank you for use fixya...
