2000 Ford Expedition V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My truck wont turn over. I have an anti theft but when I insert my key the light goes out, so I know its not that. When I turn the key over it doesn't make that "clicking" moise it makes when u have a dead battery. My head lights still come on brightly but my radio wont come on when the keys are in ignition. Could it be my starter?
Do you

Could be the ignition switch itself is bad, or the key sensing part of it. How are you at testing with cotiniuty?

I am a woman and I only know a littlle about cars. We did take the starter out and have it tested and it was fine. I was thinking maybe it could be the starter relay fusion.I am not sure.
Thanks

So is a TSB serviced the same as a recall? Or will you have to fight to get anything done?

A TSB means they know about it, and are helping thier mechanics, but it's not a recall, so you pay for the repair.
