The 1st time this happened I had been in my house for no more than an hour I came out to go out & it seemed that the batterie was dead so I turned the key it the middle before starting for a few minutes & the interior light came on & it started. Now the passed couple of time it just won't start then I turn the key to the middle wait & it starts but it sounds like it can't turnover at first like it is dead or the sound it makes when it is already started. I have it at the dealership & it starts fine everytime they try. Please help me get some idea as to what it could be.

If you can solder or know someone who can this is an easy fix. 1st the problem...The Mustang gauges are small DC motors, the motors are going bad. I just completed this on my wifes 2005 Mustang. Go to Ebay and do a search for Mustang stepper motors. They will run you about $8 each. do them all while the cluster is out.I used David Ruberg (www.speedometerrepairguy.com). Pull of the housing around the inst. cluster, take 4 screws out that hold the cluster in place. pop off the connector, take it into the house and solder in the motors. David includes instructions with the order. It took me about 2 hours total.
check the throttle body butterfly for excessive dirt build up. Mine had a rolling idle and would want stall in the mornings. The dealer said it was due to my aftermarket tuner and cold air intake..............just a dirty throttle body that i cleaned.
Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.
