Check for a bad temperature sensor. To check it, remove it first. Using an ohmmeter measure its resistance, which should decrease when dipped in hot water. If the the resistance remain high and doesnt change then you know it is bad, and you don't end up wasting money on buying one when it is still good.

either your alternator is faulty or your battery is not holding charge
i would check the alternator and the battery and replace either or both

next time it wont start, pour hot water over ecu, if it starts replace ecu, you will need a scanner to reset as it will go into theft mode when you fit new ecu, beware that this is a common fault and you can buy 2nd hand faulty computers.

Need year/make/model/mileage of vehicle to provide a more specific set of troubleshooting steps.
When was the last tune up? Hard starts when cold are usually caused by fouled spark plugs, worn plug wires, or weak ignition coils. Fuel systems are not as effected by temperature changes as the ignition components.
