Question about Ford Escape
Also when turning the key it stays in the start position and cranks but wont start. I have to manually turn key off to get it to stop cranking.
Sounds like the switch is worn out. Happens a lot, it's probably the most used part of the car.

My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!

Check your battery cables. Remove them and clean the contacts, if the ends are replacements take them apart and clean. Use a wire brush or sand paper. Make sure you remove the negative first and reinstall it last. Also check the battery and fuse links. Your problem is in there some where the battery, cable ends, cables, or a fuse link. If still no start let me know the results and we can go from there if need be.

Testimonial: "Ron, thanks for the help. I had already done what you had listed. I cannot figure out how it could work and then not work 20 seconds later "
try to start the car, than the anti theift would shut the car off. you wait ten min with the key on, until you see the anti theift flash or disapear. than turn key to off position and try to start it. this will reprogram the computer.. Good luck.
you can also try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes
