The car would not start when the ignition is turned on, there is every indication of power through the battery because the system indicator lights comes on. There is no sound at all during the ignition process, what could be the problem?
Do you

Ok if I understand you right the engine will not turn over at all. Meaning that you turn the key and nothing happens at all other then the dash lights come on? I would first check the starter relay and if it isn't a huge ordeal I would pull the starter and take it to your local parts store and have it tested. If you have a test light and a digital multi meter I will see if I can find a test procedure to test the starter relay and ignition switch. Just so I know how does the key switch feel does it feel loose or anything like that. Let me know what you want to do.

I haven't check the starter relay, where exactly is its location on the engine, the key switch feels loose-- no binding.

The starter relay is behind the center console near the floor. Here is what it should look like.
