If you take the vehicle to an auto parts store like Autozone, they can hook up a code scanner to the car and read the code. Even though the light has went off, there should still be a code stored and they should be able to tell you what the code is and what it means and then you can post that up here.

Ford Taurus being a ********


Lets start at the beginning.
You say it cranks but will not start, right ?
The warning lights are supposed to come on with the key on and then go off once the engine starts.
If the engine cranks but will not start, someone will need to figure out if it is lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs, or something else. One way we check it is to look for spark at the plugs, check the fuel pressure, and try starting fluid in the throttle body.

could be a body control module that went bad, but should have the service engine soon light investigated.

Have the car scanned by an OBD-II scanner by your local technician or by an auto parts store like Autozone or Advance. Many times they will do it for free.

Be aware that the body control module is separate from the engine computer which OBD-II was designed to scan.

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
