2004 Express cutaway box truck with intermittent starting

Customer Question

2004 Express cutaway box truck with intermittent starting issues. Replaced the battery a cpl months ago and problem stopped. It has now returned, failing 4-5 times over last month.
Turn the key, the dash lights go on but truck doesnt crank. Blower/headlights dim volt meter(dash) drops but starter doesnt engage. Sometimes if you hold the key in the start position after a time (10-20 sec) all of a sudden truck starts.
