Can anyone explain why my 1993 Cadillac Eldorado wont start after it sits overnight? Also, why does my interior lights jump on sometimes when I hit a bump then turn off when I hit the door panel. My car...

Cranks and starts are two different things.
If it cranks but won't start it could be loosing fuel pressure overnight.
If it won't crank in the morning, you could have a bad cell in the battery or something draining the battery overnight. Such as the interior lights coming on and off.
The light problem could be the door ajar sensor in the door latch.

07 lexus rx350 slow to start after sitting over night. Once it cranks it is back to normal.

If it turns over hard in the morning then either something is staying on and draining the battery or the battery is nearing the end of its life. Check things like the glovebox light, trunk light for staying on. Simply remove the bulbs and see if that helps. If not , you should pick up a new battery.

If it turns over good the problem would be either the cold start system or your fuel system is losing pressure overnight. This would require furthur diagnosis. Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 Audi Avant-wont turn over

Have you checked if you have a good charged battery ? If battery is good, might want to check if you have a good starter.

Then we can begin to figure out a few other possible problems.

Truck wont start after sitting overnight. Batterys good replaced alternator. Cranks but won't start

You need to test the fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail.
Compare normal (running) pressure to that at cold start. I suspect your fuel pump or regulator are failing. Short or that, a shot of carburator spray on cold start into the intake will demonstrate fuel problems.
If a boost spray resolves your problems, you know it is fuel related.
