05 stang is acting up!

When I go to start my car it acts like the battery is dead, when I hit the switch 2 or 3 more times it starts up, the cd player cycles through all the disc's, the tach reads 0 rpm's at idle and all the other gauges seem to be fine, checked alternater old fashion way taking pos off battery, no idle drop or anything, all seems fine with charging system. If anyone has had this issue or has any ideas I could sure use them! Thanks in advance.

Soo, is the battery good? A marginal battery can do all kinds of weird electrical problems..

Battery is 2yrs or less, I only drive when weather is nice I keep on a battery tender when not driving.

The two biggest causes of electrical problems in the early S197's are a wet SJB (let's hope not) or a Shaker 500. The Shaker 500 tends to be a draw on the battery as many develop the bad habit of trying to endlessly cycle CD's. Try ejecting your CD's when your car is parked for a few days to see if that's the problem.
