Unhappy Renault Espace III Electronics - Electrical Problems when Cold

I have what sounds like an identical problem to this thread. Has anyone found a solution?

Here are the details:

Espace III yr 2000 Petrol 16v:
On cold mornings: Electronic central locking will not operate. Entering vehicle via door key: courtesy lights do not operate. Turn on ignition & no dash board display. Engine will turnover though. New battery fitted & earth straps checked in engine compartment & 4 points in front passenger compartment. As car warms up, courtesy lights & dash-board flicker on and off. When warm, all is OK except initially no oil level display until warmer still when oil level then works OK. Once it is working it is fine for the rest of the day.

I need some colder mornings to help sort this since it has been warmer recently and car is fine. Where should I look? Help!
