Starting and dashboard light problem - have 2014 Forester

Customer Question

Starting and dashboard light problem - my name is Al
have 2014 Forester 2.5i Touring with 37,386 miles. Ran fine until today.
Wife had trouble starting it. Once it would's start. She tried again immediately.
She went to another shopping mall and when she came out it wouldn't start again. She then tried to start it again and it wouldn't start, she immediately tried a number of times and it wouldn't start. After 20 minutes it started.
She came home and I tried it a number of times and it started, but . . .
Each time all of the lights on the dash lit up, including the Eyesite lights. After it started they all went out except the headlight light (it is on Auto).
