There is a ballast resistor that reduces the voltge at the coil terminals when the engine is running. When cranking the resistor is taken out of the circuit so the reduced battery voltage while cranking is sufficient for the coil to work. The resistor is most likely open. It is located on the firewall, has 2 wires going to it. It is about 4 inches long and has a metal band around it used as the mount.

Replace the ignition barrel. Inside is a lot of switches that wear out. It could also be the starter relay. Although this is least likely.

SOURCE: Ignition Lock Cylinder
There is a small button that can be pushed near the lock cylinder when the key is in the ignition and turned, the cylinder can be pulled out then.

if the fuel pump cutoff was tripped it would not start at all, I know this for sure, I am a Ford dealer tech and I specialize in no starts and check eng lights. If the ignition switch is bad the 2 halves of the switch will be starting to come apart, it is very common, u should be able to either see it or feel it with your hand.

take the vin along with the paper of the truck to show it you and the year to a ford dealer or mercury dealer and they should be able to help you and the other way is to call a locksmith but going to the dealership yourself will be cheaper.

Sounds like a fuel pump issue turn the key over as if listening to your radio and listen towards the fuel pump it will be the only noise you hear if no noise your pump is bad otherwise if you are gettin noise it could be your fuel filter.
