Question about Cars & Trucks
I have had the battery tested and charged, I have replaced the starter, and it is also a new alternator which I had tested anyway with the battery it all checked out fine. I also recently successfully bypassed the V.A.T.S.
Two things come to mind.
The Starter Solenoid may be have a problem or the starter may not be aligned properly. You didn't mention what kind of vehicle so I can't offer more specific instructions

Testimonial: "Sorry I did add it but it left out that its a 1995 Z28 Camaro 5.7 and it was doing this before I changed the whole starter out."

When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

could be a problem with your flywheel or if the starter was just replaced and you started hearing the noise then it could have to be shimmed out from the flywheel. Could be a starter issue.

Radio and lights can work with weak battery, too weak to turn starter.
Noise when shutting off maybe dieseling due to fuel mixture too rich or timing off.
When you say car won't start do you mean starter turns but engine does not start, or do you mean starter does not turn.

SOURCE: My 2007 corolla won't start.
1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.

You are right.Its the key code problem.
As per the manual it says:--- sometimes when the battery is disconnected or has to be recharged - this happens. The computer forgets the key code and the key has to be re-coded. The ford service center/dealer charge $35 to $50 for recoding the key and this makes the car to function properly and it starts .
Also check the code in your car:--- under the plastic-passenger side under the very back window-next to rear passenger door jam-Looks like a black box. The Original Code is on a tag on that box.But if its not there then dealer is other option/.It takes few minutes to get recoded.----------------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
