Check out the Battery and Battery Cables. Usually they do this if the Cables on the Battery are Loose and the Battery is Drained. You will need to get a Jump or Charge With a Charger Or get a New Battery. Let me know what happens. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

No such thing on your car. The temp sensor tells the computer what the engine coolant temp is. If it were faulty you would get a check engine light. I would have the fuel pressure checked before and after you crank the engine. The pump relay provides power to the pump when you turn the key on to recover some of the lost fuel pressure after the car sits. The one way valve in the pump is supposed to prevent the pressure from dropping. If the fuel pressure drops to zero it could take some time to crank the engine enough to get it back up.
In the morning, turn key to on position for 5 seconds. Do not crank.Then turn off for 5 seconds. Repeat this about 5 times. Then try to start. If engine starts right up, the fuel pump check valve is bad. Meaning all fuel in fuel line is returning to the tank when car sits overnight. The only fix is to replace fuel pump. If that doesn't work, replace coolant temp. sensor for the computer. About a 12.00 part.
Open the bonnet area, you will find the master switch on the upper left area, turn it OFF (right). After one minute, put the ignition in POS 2 without starting the car, leave for 30sec, start the car BUT leave idle for 10 minutes.
