That doesn't seem like a starter issue to me. It seems to crank fine. If the starter was acting up wouldn't it be intermittent failure to crank? His issue almost seems like a fuel pump issue(as if it isn't sending fuel to the injectors so won't start). Almost certainly electrical. I wonder what the connection is to the gauge cluster light delay. Post up if you find a solution. The link above seems like a good possibility.
