SOURCE: Turn key, nothing happens
It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

A car that cranks over but doesn't start, in many cases will be
due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or
crank sensor. Also these problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the
spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually
you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem.
Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil
pack. It will show 12 volt. If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then
its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced. If all the possible options
checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery
to start the car. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to
start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If its very low
fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that
fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of
the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little
starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car
starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or
the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound
when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected,
a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being
supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical
issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gauge and if there is
pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including
the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse
the engine won't start.If the check engine light is coming ON.Then it will be more easy to get the fault detected.et the car scanned at autozone service center.Its free to get car scanned.As per the error code detected the faulty part can be easily identified and replaced.
