Sounds like a dead battery as a battery with one bad cell will still power some items but won't have the amps to engage the starter, Have the battery tested at your local auto parts store

you might try replacing lock tumbler on ignition. I just had a similar problem w/89 ford 1.8L. I replaced the key switch and then replaced lock tumbler only to find out I didn't need to replace the key switch. sometimes a person can learn from experience too, even bad ones. I also had full power to everything but nothing when I turned the key. Once I replaced the lock tumbler(which keeps the key in the "on" position) then It started right up, w/full battery, and all lights and instrument panel worked as well. It's a cheap and easy do it yourself fix.
