Odd crank but no start issue

2000 9-5 Aero

Bought needing a twice, swapped in a twice and key fob and programmed via tech2 and ran fine for a week.

Original cluster had a non operational speedo so I swapped in a used one I bought. Had the original cluster out of the car and tried to start one day and it just cranked ( thought maybe it wouldn't start without a cluster)

With new cluster it would crank then make a whining/grinding type noise then stop cranking so I threw in another starter, whining is gone but still won't start

Tried DICs, fresh plugs,maf, coolant temp sensor, cps, fpr, fuel pump, getting 40psi at the rail, did a compression test and its solid

Cel p1460 which is related to the twice so not sure if that could be an issue

There has been 2 times where it has started up but then died within 3 seconds.

Any ideas???
