It is not uncommon for the electrical part of the ignition to go bad (try taking it out and try to jump start the car like in the movies with a couple of paperclips, usually you join the yellow and red and just touch and let go the purple on the red - the purple one is for the starter - the colors might vary check with the electrical diagram from the repair manual - also, key must be in the ignition in case you have an imobiliser and the 2004 expl has it). But before this complicated job, try the starter's relay and fuse/s. :)
