Ignition Switch Intermittant fail?

    Initially I thought something really serious was going on, but by tinkering I find I am definately seeing an electrical issue.

    Often when I turned the key the truck would turn over but would never start. Eventually I noticed that when this happened I would not hear the familiar power up of the fuel pump in the back. Furthermore I noticed that none of the warning lights would come on. Now I've found I can turn the key back and forth and usually after a few tries the warning lights will all pop on and at that point I know the truck will start.

    I'm assuming the ignition switch is going bad, but I thought I might toss this out there in case someone might point me in a different direction before I blow the $100 and the effort of pulling the steering column apart.

    Could it be anything else?

    Thanks!
