The new 2010 Fusion has what Ford calls, "one touch" start. If you turn the key to the start position and let go, the starter continues to turn. The ECM takes over the starting process and monitors the number of times the crankshaft rotates as it adds fuel and ignition for the engine to start. On 2010 Fusion's built before August 2009, there is a problem with the starting process. On occasion, the starter will turn the engine, but the engine will not start. The starter will not time out and the only way to stop the starter is to turn the key to the "off" position. TSB 09-19-1 is supposed to take care of the issue by replacing the ground cable with one that has a capacitor in it. Fusion owners with the no-start/intermittent start issue can go to their dealers with the TSB. I have tried to write down some simple tips that may help you to find out why
your car won't start. These tips may also prevent you from being overcharged by
dishonest mechanics - you will often be charged more at a garage if you look
unfamiliar with the car mechanical aspects.
It's frustrating when your car won't start - this happened at least once to most of the drivers. I had situations when my car won't start many times. But no need to panic. The process that goes on since the moment you took the keys out of your pocket to the point where the engine is running is a fairly simple one and it involves few steps.
The engine computer uses the signals from the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors to know which cylinder is in the compression cycle. If either of the sensors is bad, the car won't start. Similarly, if the timing belt, chain or gears are broken, the camshaft won't turn and the engine won't start
The fuel pump starts running, building up the fuel pressure in the fuel injector rail. The engine computer alternatively opens electronic fuel injectors that spray short bursts of gasoline vapors into the intake manifold (or in case of the direct injection, straight into the cylinders). If the fuel pump is bad, the car won't start.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

You have 2 issue going on. Its not seeing a valid key,and it is starting with the remote.Your remote entry key did it happen to get wet? Or moisture get in? Lock the vehicle up using the key. enter the vehicle using the key fob.After the vehicle unlocks you have 60 seconds to enter the vehicle insert the key in the ignition start it up.Your remote start up is out of step.

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.
