Chevy S-10 Pick-up No Start

Q. Sometimes when I turn the switch my truck will not start. At these times I have noticed that my dash lights and daytime running lights also do not come on. The radio will play, the A/C will run, and the lights, courtesy and headlights, will come on. Sometimes after a 10 or 15 second delay the dash lights, and I can also hear the fuel pump, come on.
