Default 2003 Civic start problem

Yesterday morning my 2003 civic did not start right away. The dashboard flashed and there were clicking noises. After the 3rd key turn it started.

I took it to the dealer, and they checked the battery, starter, and alternator voltages and said the charging system was fine. They said maybe I left something on over night.

I made sure that nothing in the cabin was on, and this morning I again had crank the car twice to get it to start.

I don't get a battery light while driving either.

I am going to do a multimeter test today to see if there is any parasitic draw from somewhere.

So my question: What could be the problem is there is no short anywhere?

I am thinking alternator diode.
