How old is the battery? What is the voltage? Might be enough to have the lights on , but not enough for the car to crank. Maybe the ignition switch is faulty. You'll have to do some diagnosis.

I had the battery checked and it's good enough. It was 12.2 volts when checks and all cells were ok.. I checked the starter relay and it was good as well.. from what I read it sounds like the ignition relay went bad. Do you feel like that could be the issue?

No

No the starter and battery are good
