You may not believe what I am going to say, but pumping the gas pedal does nothing to make the engine start.
The throttle position sensor does not start sending a signal to the computer until after the engine starts.
However, cranking the engine for an extended period of time could have an effect. If the fuel pressure is low, cranking the engine would build it back up to normal.
I would suggest you have the fuel pressure checked before and after the first attempt of the day. The car would need to sit overnight for the first test.

Airbag system failures are difficult to identify and correct unless you have a scanner that can read the codes from both the primary airbag system and the Passenger Presence Module. Since the voltages and currents are low, it is common for corrosion in connectors to cause the system to fail. So get or borrow a scanner which will tell you exactly what is wrong and if it is an open circuit, remove the seat from the floorboard and tilt it back a bit to better access the connectors and clean the pins and sockets with alcohol and a swab. Test the source connections for the proper resistance to ground and voltages using the service manual as a reference. Continue to use the scanner to see if the problem clears up by clearing the code and checking to see if it returns. If the source connector pins are good and cleaning didn't solve the problem, grease them with a conductive grease.

Engine should have two coolant temp sensors, one for the dash has only one wire while the one that speaks to the ECU has two wires. Try replacing the first one.

Fuse number 13 is a 20amp fuse that powers the ASD relay and the computer among other things.
Someone will have to pull the relay and check the circuits one by one to find the short. It could be any one of a dozen or more components.

This can be due to low oil level, a defective sensor, or a failing oil pump.

Man, you've spent some money without isolating the problem. Throwing parts at a problem is never a way forward. The brakes not working when its cold? When you pump the brakes does the pedal become hard/normal in cold weather or at any time? What happens if you plug the booster hose and start up, is the pedal hard instantly? You say there is engine oil in the booster? how much? What mileage has it done and is the engine in good condition ie serviced? I know this sounds silly but you haven't really got to what the dealer is supposed to have done for your money. I find it difficult to believe there is no experienced tech who couldn't work this out. He should do things like clamp off the flexi lines to each wheel in turn and then in pairs then all together etc with proper brake hose clamps to see if that makes a difference. He should be leaving it out in the cold and seeing for himself what happens.
Did the shop go through this sort of process? Careful checks and process of elimination is what gets to the bottom of these faults.

Check the gear linkage cable (very common problem) look down inside engine bay towards top of bell case (thats where the linkage meets with selector arm. Get someone to wiggle the gear stick while you observe selector arm. (if you move the air box out of the way you can reach down and de-select the gear with your hand- should get you neutral at least)... I'll keep an eye out for any reply...
