trouble starting in morning again

Ok guys so I'm having a strange start up issue in the mornings again but I'm making a new thread because last time the problem was my fault. ( I believe due to lazy amp wiring)
So lately in the morning when I start my car, it makes a noise like it is struggling to start on the first start up. The car still turns on, but the ESP BAS light is on so I turn off the car, and start it a second time. It starts perfectly fine the second time with no strange noise and no lights. No other problems noticed. Any ideas?

Hi Dab King,

Sorry to hear about your concern. Have you inspected your battery and all of its connections? Are the battery cables, themselves, clean?
Hi Dab King,

As djalbin pointed out, yes, corrosion on the connections may cause your concern. I recommend bringing your vehicle to an FCA dealership to have them diagnose it. Either way, be sure to keep us posted!
This morning I recorded my startup again and it didn't happen haha -___-
The only thing I can think of that I changed is the last two nights I went and sat in my car and turned only the battery on to lower the windows. I have no idea if that means anything just trying to record everything that happens though. Going to clean the connection tonight I think. From looking online I think a qtip with baking soda and water should do it
Thanks for the update. Did you end up having a chance to clean it last night?
honestly I completely forgot about it the second I heard my new exhaust. It didn't do it this morning either though! so strange
It does seem strange. Any updates since Friday?
Hi Dab King,

No problem, I’m always happy to help!

Your latest concern could be caused by a number of things, which is why I recommend having an FCA dealership formally diagnose it. Either way, please be sure to keep us posted as this moves along!
