SOURCE: 2000 mercury cougar wont start
what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

I had an Audi A4, 10 years older than yours mind you, but it would start then stop, sometimes 10 times but would eventually go. I ran a little WD40 in the key barrel and put the key in and out a couple of dozen times. Wiping it with a cloth each time, lots of dirt came off. My theory and it's only mine, is that the wear on the key left dirty metal deposits inside which stopped the chip in the key being recognised. I believe they had a security chip inside the key.
Anyway after 6 months of this nuisance it never happened again after that. Fixed my problem and a lot of frustration. Maybe help you too.

Check the fuel pump fuse first, if its good then check the fuel pump relay. Try swapping it with another like it in the area, If its also good, check for power at the fuel pump harness with the switch on. If power is present, the pump is most likely bad.

First off I am sorry you have a cougar also.... I am on my third fuel pump ... stupid car anyways. If you didn't do it yet one make sure you get one from the dealer... Hopefully you will have better luck than me i paid 400 last year and tried to get one on warrenty then I had to wait since may to august to get it good news for you Ford should have it off back order. It is in the fuel pump you can 1. drop the tank (huge pain) or 2. it is WAY easier to take out your back seat ther eis a small hole to see the pump covered by a black plastic thing. You can then make the hole bigger and pull the pump out that way.
