2001 Zetec won't start at all

I'm a driver for a pizza place. Yesterday, after a usual delivery, I went back to my car, turned the key and nothing happened... at all. No sound, I can't even hear anything TRY to start.
The battery is still good, the interior lights still work, it beeps when you have the door open with the key in, but it will not unlock the transmission, start, or turn on headlights/breaklights. The four-ways still work.

My Grandpa said he thought that maybe the battery was bad, but it is less than a year old, and all the interior lights are still as bright as ever. The guy that towed it home for me said that the ignition is known to go bad and can cause similar problems. I don't want to replace the ignition if I'm not sure that is the real problem. Especially if I have to get my keys reprogrammed.

Any info that might help could be greatly appreciated. Also, I don't have any device to access the computer, but I know someone that may (possibly) let me borrow one if that info would help, we aren't on great terms with each other right now though.
