HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.
2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.
If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.
OK.. I hope this information work for you.
Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

SOURCE: car was running fine, stopped
Was the anti-theft system activated? Mine did that and had to be taken in to Ford. As a result of an immobilized engine my battery ended up being drained...... $225 later (was not covered by extended warranty :( ) my car finally was fixed... now my upper motor mount needs replacing

On a 96' Ford Explorer XLT (like mine) the code is in the trunk of the truck behind
the plastic cover where your tire jack and wrench are! There will be
two plastic knobs that you will have to turn to open and lift it off,
real simple. The code will be on the fender wall, bring paper and pen to
write and will need a flash light so you can see the code clearly.
The code is real close the the plasic and kinda hard to see. Hope this helps! If you dont see the above,then try looking around in that area for a 5 digit code, in the fender well or around the jack, or even around the rear washer bottle. Most people have said its around the jack.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

one problem that the 98 winstars ( 3,8L ) are prone to is the transmission range sensor. they are badly located and not well sealed. As a result corosion...
The starter solenoid wire ( red/ light blue ) runs throught the range sensor before reaching the ignition switch.
Try shifting back and forth between Park and L1 rapedly at least 5, 6 times and then try starting in Neutral.
If it starts the TRS is easy to replace and accesible.
( The TRS is also responsible for the transmission going into irradical kick down mode )
