Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
Battery is new as well as the cables. Lights and windows are working. When I turn the key nothing happens, not even a cranking sound. I do hear a humming sound when I turn the ignition
So your fuel pump is working, it could be that your starter is not. Check your starter.

SOURCE: FORD EXPLORER IGNITION IS STUCK
just replace the ignition it is only about 25 dollars or so and it should not have a pats system for that year you must have the key to get the ignition out though do you have another key ... the key must be turned to get it out and back in you can drill the lock and then turn it so you can remove it but if you are not comfortable doing this call a locksmith.. much cheaper than a dealer

1 starter is bad its located on the driver side of the engine beside the oil pan. 3 bolts and 2 electrical connections
2 bad battery cables. i have replaced a lot of battery cables on these they let enough power through to get a click but not enough to start the engine. this cable is a special cable only available through ford or you can make 1 yourself

Possible that the solenoid is faulty if the sound is a click without any cranking. If not this can also be the starter motor not able to turn but trying to move. It can be poor brushes, poor contacts or even if the starter is jammed at the pinion and flywheel.
Try to engage the car in 2nd gear and push to disengage or try to push and start to confirm if this is a low battery problem.
