To check your starter, locate the starter, this should be on the side of the transmission and eng. there should be 2 wires going to it, 1 small wire (signal from your ignition switch) and one big one(power from your battery). use something metal to connect the 2 together. if it starts cranking over you know your starter is good.
Or you could just take it out and take it too your local auto parts store, most can bench test them.

Someone should be able to chime in but ford has microchip keys, i'm not sure if the computer shuts fuel off or stop ignition signal.

Starter, new battery, turn key and just klicks


One click or a bunch of clicks when you hold the key on start? Turn the interior lights on and try to start it. Do the lights stay on okay or do they dim a lot or go out? If out, not enough power coming out of the battery.

Hmmm. Don't be too hasty replacing the starter. With no exterior lights working it suggests an open circuit in the system that could relate to your starting problem. Start with your fuses that are related to lighting and starting. Check connections for corrosion and rust.

Sounds like the battery may be bad. You could remove it and take it to a mechanic or parts store and have them test it for you. Mechanic might charge you 15bucks or so. Most parts stores will test it for free and gladly sell you a new one.
