When it does it again,,,You are doing things right, BUT... dont do anything electrical (push brakes,open door,blow horn,set emerg brake...nothing...just try to start car,when it dont start, leave key on 20 mins or so,turn key off for 30 sec. then start the car. Just to be sure that its not flooding itself,while its running,disconnect the vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator,(holding your finger on the vacuum line)so to see if fuel is getting past the diaphram and getting sucked into the intake manifold. After you verify the regulator is not leaking connect the vacuum line back.
Just unhook your battery cables for about 2 minutes......this should reset it....
