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

If you have a spare key try that first. Also try trurning the steering wheel back and forth while you try to turn the key. If those two don't work than remove the key and tap the lock cylinder with the handle end of a large crew driver several times. Then try the key. Repeat this several times it should eventually turn. If the key does turn after tapping than replace the lock cylinder IMEDIATELY. The key needs to be in the "run" position in order to remove the lock cylinder. If you can't turn the key to this position you will have to drill the lock cylinder out to move it.

If the headlights work, I would check for voltage at the key switch and the major fuses.
If nothing works, I would start at the battery and work toward the fuse boxes. Could be a bad ground connection too.
