I have owned my 2004 Crossfire for the last 5 years and just recently started to experience it not starting at times, stalling while standing idle or driving which is very dangerous. Like others i have read about here, u leave it, and wait about a few hours and it starts again. My question:
Whats causing this problem, before i take it to the dealer,
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The lights are on their own personal circuit from the starter. Every time you turn the key on the connections are getting warmer each time. You state after the 3rd time it will start. You will need to check all connections to make sure they are very clean and tight. A loose or corroded connection will cause a problem such as yours
This is not the problem I have a chrysler crossfire and experienced the same problem there is some good news if it frequently stops working for no reason the problem is most likely the RCM module has a shortage in it I fixed my crossfire and 3 others buy repairing the RCM its easy and simple any question you can email me I can give you a easy walk through to fix the problem and avoid paying hundred at the dealership it shouldn't take no more than 15 minutes to fix DIY!!
MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON
I also own a '04 Crossfire and the clatter upon start up is very common. Although I believe it is the lifters, I've been told that the Mercedes fuel injectors are the main culprit to the ticking. But like you I have been agitated by this since buying the car. Recently mine went from just a ticking to a definite top end knocking and am being told today by the dealer that it is the lifters sticking. Don't know if a valve job and lifters will resolve the initial ticking, but I have my fingers crosses considering the $1018.00 price quote.
Same thing happened to me. It was giving me problems starting it. It died on me at the stop sign last week. I kept driving. On Friday it shut down on me while doing 60mph on the hwy. I towed it to the nearest dealer. The said they had top replace the cranck sensor and a cam sensor. I paid $1,043.01 for that. Today I couldn't start it....
