I have a 2013 ST3 with about 47k miles on it. I just recently noticed that sometimes during startup it takes about 2 seconds after the engine started for the gauge cluster to start working. The tachometer does a little twitch before start working. I posted a video to show it in action, the engine cranks at 2 seconds if you have the sound off.

It's not a huge deal by itself but I'm concerned that it might be a sign for something serious down the road.

Just an update:

A few days after I posted this video my battery died. After replacing it the issue stopped happening. So if anyone has similar issues then it's probably because your battery is on its way out.

I noticed that my speedometer is off. Shows like 5mph at idle. At least it saves me from speeding tickets.

My 16 just started doing this. Did your trip meters all reset too? I got the battery tested but it checked good just low charge. Cant find anything that is draining the battery. Was leaving it on whike running errands... Damn. Maybe i will have to replace it after all.
