Its your engine management system or possibly emission control i.e. the lambda sensor or oxygen sensor for the catalyst or the catalyst itself. Trying to start a car with a catalytic converter can flood the cat with fuel if it won't start for a while. The effect of this is that when the car finally starts the cat will fry and possibly break up as it is only a ceramic honeycomb inside. suggest you get it checked out.
