I am assuming that because you can push start it the vehicle is equipped with a manual transmission. There is a safety switch that connect to the clutch pedal in some way. If this switch is defective, unplugged, or bad connection it could inhibit the starting with the key.

When you say you 'start it from the front', what is it you do?

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

Check the battery. If the battery is weak all you will hear is the starter soliniod clicking. Make sure that all of the cables have good clean tight connections.
Most Auto parts stores can test your battery to see what shape it is in.

Hi,I have a Ford 2004 Bantam 1.6i XLE. The airbag light keeps flashing,after a while it stays on constantly...possible faults or solutions?

You must have the fault code read that is recorded when the light flashes. Have the system canned by the dealer.

2005 Ford Freestar after starting van or even w/o starting and key turned to 'on' position gets 5 audible beeps (five times total) with no light illuminated on the dash.

Most Fords will give you an audible warning if there is an issue that would normally light on the dash AND the bulb is burnt out. This could be an emissions (check engine) light or air bag light. Even without the light on the dash, the computer will store a code that can be used to find out which light is on.
