Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Things checked : battery starter fuel fuses relays and spark all were good.......
The signal to the starter solenoid depends on a switch on the brake pedal lever. Chances are your foot has moved or broken this switch. Check to see if your brake lights work.
You can also put a Voltmeter on the small wire on the starter solenoid to see if voltage is present when you turn the key to the START position.

Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.

it will be in fuse box under hood or under dash your owners manual shows which relay it is or you can look in a haynes or chilton manual at your local parts house

there is usually a relay block (black in color) either on the right or left side under the hood, and in front of the wheel well. Don't discount the possibility that you may have a bad pressure switch on the line. That is a safety device that is now installed on most all vehicles. If you turn on your defrost, you should hear the clutch on your AC clicking on and off. If you do, there is another issue. If you don't, then listen for a faint clicking. This is a small relay so it maybe very hard to hear, even if you found it. You many actually have to lightly put a finger on the relay cube to see if you can feel it clicking. If this is clicking, but the AC is not kicking in and out, replace the relay. If this is NOT clicking with the defrost on, then it is not being told that it is ok to. This may be the pressure switch that drops out if the freon is too low, or too high.

Check out your "fuel cut-off switch" located by the windshield washer tank behind the driver's side wheel-well panel in the trunk. It's a small box with a push-button at the top. If the button is "soft" when you push it, that's probably your problem. Replace the unit by removing the washer fluid tank first. The box simply plugs in. Probably about $ 100. I replaced three in my Probe. They rot out, and the car simple dies.
