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

Testimonial: "Terian5- Thanks for the help Traced the wire to starter. the wire looks like it snaps on. put it back and it started. I need to tighten nut."
sounds like the computer is not working or is not making contact possibly bad ground if anyone has a scan tool and can read codes or if they plug it in and cant retrieve from computer, I would remove PCM and then try swapping with a known good PCM from another truck
