Hi. This is a pretty rare situation for a taurus, no fire, (ignition) in all the taurus' I've seen only a handful have had no spark. The most likely cause of this condition is going to be a crankshaft sensor problem. But, there is also probability of having a security system locking out spark and possibly even a bad coil pack. I'd bet on the crankshaft sensor anyways, but check to see if the theft light goes on flashes rapidly when trying to start the vehicle, this will tell tale of a security problem with either the key or lock cylinder. The most common Ford no start issues I encounter almost on a daily basis would be caused by fuel pumps going bad. You should probably try and spray some carb cleaner solution into the throttle body just in case, and crank the engine over to see if it starts. I know you stateed NO FIRE but every so often I encounter a hiccup in the ECM that may be just a fuel pump shorting out signals and it turns out the fuel pump was the cause. Good luck, and let me know if you need more help.
