Weird start and no start

so got in my truck this morning around 8, pretty cold outside but not freezing, warmed it up and started like a champ. a few hours later around 12 oclock i went outside to start it again and go to lunch, so i warmed it up and tried to start it, heres the problem...
it wouldnt even try and start. it made a bunch of clicking noises and all my gauges freaked out and started twitching. i tried 3 or 4 times with the same results. about 5 mins later and a whole lost of cuss words i tried again and started with no problem and drove fine.
what the hell was that?! i didnt think it was my batteries cause everything was fine this morning after sitting all night. i know this probably isnt it either but i did remove my CAT yesterday (so maybe the CAT?)
could it be alternator or starter or what??

please help

Well the clicking to me sound like starter or relay, but the gauges going crazy IDK what would cause that.

I had the same issue when the alternator was acting up. The batteries weren't being charged during normal operation. With low input voltage, the PCM will shut down power.
