2012 5 speed wont start.

Clutch in, turn the key and engine wont make an attempt to turn over, but all the lights/electrical work. This has happened around 5 times in the past month and a half. usually takes me a 3rd or 4th try for the engine to turn on. I checked the battery leads and they are tight with no corrosion. Anyone have the same problem with the 5 speed? I have an appointment with the local Ford dealership tomorrow morning. Hopefully they can fix this annoying problem.

There is this TSB. Could also be the starter or ignition switch. How many miles? Do you have a lot of weight on your key chain?

First thing I'd suspect would be the switch that indicates when the clutch pedal is pressed. Are you sure you're pushing it all the way down? The wiring harness TSB that BetaDnB linked to is also important to check.
