When you turn the key it sounds like it is trying to turn over, just won't catch. Replaced battery, started right up. 3 hours later same problem, no start. Removed starter, cleaned all connections and solenoid. Fiddled with all conncections, started and worked for 3 days. Today, same problem, tries to turn over, sometiems it will start, mostly it won't. Replaced starter, didn't work. Seems to start randomly. Next step??

I looked at info for your security system, it is starter motor disable. I didn't see 06 ford Taurus in my database, so I looked at 05.
Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good?
We can usually do some tests to see if starter motor will crank the engine, but, if the security is the problem, it still won't start.
You can check for applicable trouble codes? Try a different key?
have you disconnected the battery for more than 5 mins before the trouble started, if so you have to reset the idle value by disconnecting the negative battery cable, put a shop towel between the battery post and cable, run a jumper wire from the negative battery cable to the positive cable ,which is still connected, leave it on there for 5 mins, remove jumper wire, reconnect negative cable to battery, when you start it, turn the key to the on position, wait for some of the lights by the speedometer start to go off, then start 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.
Figure by everything else you mean the radio,lights,etc? Is the engine turning over? What happens when the key is fully engaged? If the engine does not turn over the first place to look would be your fuses. Ensure that none look to be burnt or blown.If so replace and try again.If fuses look good Next step would be to ensure starter connection is good and starter is turning over.If the starter is not turning over then I would focus on it.Hope this helps.
yea got get you more troubles just check the alternator is charging well and no battery light on dashboard it indicate the bad alternator monitor your battery if it got old and cannot hold the charge any more you said when you used another one your car turned on
