Try another battery. Sometimes a battery might have enough amp to turn the lights on, open and close the windows, and even beep the horn. Sometimes it might even display that it have the right amp, but in reality the battery is damage giving you the wrong information.
Test with another battery, you could borrow one from a friend. Being there, done that.

Looks like the ignition switch is bad. The fact that the car starts with jumping th e starter, that eliminates the starter, bad wiring and weak battery.
Ignition switch is right behind the key cylinder at the steering column.
Good luck

My car won't start, i tried to jump it but nothing happened


Turn the key to on position for 20 mins for the key relearn process to complete.
But....if you get a good click and have a fully charged battery but no cranking from the starter motor........you may need a starter.

I have a 1997 Ford Taurus and if i turn the key in the run position nothing works...My windows won't let down...my sunroof will not open...My fuel pump is not coming on...my cooling fan is not working, and...


When this happens, leave the key in the ignition and change from park to neutral and back again. I have to do this on my Taurus SHO from time to time. It won't start because it doesn't think it is in Park. Something to do with the shift selector switch on the transmission.

Re: engine won't turn over


to turn over the starter motor you require a lot of current . If the battery has a partial charge the accessories may work but the Car starter motor won't turn over. However you should hear a click from the starter motor soleniod.
If you hear no click when you turn the key to start the car might have an immobilizer that is stopping the car from starting ?
