SOURCE: electrical issue
Not sure this is the solution..but the same thing happened to me several times over a few month span. After many attempts to fix a number of items (alternator, etc.), I was told that there was a problem with the radio, and that it had to be "factory reset." My local dealer got some kind of code from Ford and fixed the problem. I haven't had a problem for over a year.

I have a 2004 Mercury Sable which is just like it and recently had this problem. It ended up being the starter solenoid. I hope this helps you!

no starter relay is always at the fuse relay box at the engine compartment. The relay that you hear is the relay for the accessories to turn off the power during starting position.
