2006 Mustang random starter issues - Video included

Hello! I need some advice for the problem that I'm having with my 2006. It usually happens once a month - I go to start my car and it just won't turn over. It makes a little click and sad noise, and it won't start. The lights and everything else come on, but it doesn't start until the 4th or even the 20th time. It stopped happening for about 5 months, and now its happening again.

I replaced the battery, and the dealership is unable to replicate the issue so they cannot find the problem. Has anyone else had this, or do you have any advice? This is so frustrating :/

Here is the video from today: (Car finally starts at 1:33)

I couldn't tell when it was happening but when you put the key into the crank position is that when all the dash lights go off? If so I would look at battery cables and connections to ground.

If when you put the key into crank position and nothing happens (but lights stay on) you are going to need to check voltage to starter solenoid.

Intermittent problems are a nightmare...good luck

When instrument lights go off with the key in crank, does ALL the electrical stuff die too (headlights, radio, etc.)?

If so, in addition to Mud's great suggestion, I might look at the ignition system too.

Might also be worth peeking into the fuse boxes and making sure all the fuses and relays are fully seated in their sockets. You might get lucky and find something.
