Check the battery and the alternator. I think that the battery isn't getting charged by the alternator. While idling the alternator should show a voltage o/p somewhere between 12.5 to 14 volts with 15 being max.

If the car cold starts in the morning and dies down after a small spin then it is a battery/alternator problem if not then also check for coolant levels and any radiator leakage. All cars have temperature controls so if the temperature exceeds the normal limit the car wont start.

Hope this helps
