Sounds like it flooding?, although i am not sure how that could happen on FI vehicles. Either that or maybe it is not getting any or enough fuel.
You could try spraying a little starter fluid in the intake when it will not crank over and try to start it to see if it turns over. (I have done it before on my car, turned out i had a bad fuel pump) Although i believe somewhere in the owners manual that it say it is not recommendd.
Also it might be worth into checking all the sensors ie MAF, CPS, and Throttle body (Mass air flow, and Crank position), as well as the fuel pressure regulator.
one last thing i found that could cause that is the DME getting wet from strong storms and automatic car washing, but i think that only affected early models, i believe 94' and earlier.
Hopefully this info will help you, good luck.
