SOURCE: 98 Ford Contour CNG does not switch to CNG, stays on gasoline

The older CNG Contours are prone to "compuvalve" failure. The compuvalve is the system that injects natural gas into the engine instead of gasoline. If the unit dies, your CNG light will not come on, and the car will default to gasoline.

You could check and see if the CNG fuses are blown. They are located on the driver side strut tower brace, between the strut tower and the power brake booster.

The fuses are covered with a black rubber boot, that is secured with a small black ziptie. Cut the ziptie and you shoud find 2 fuses. These are the fuses for the CNG system and compuvalve.

1998 ford contour battery drains over night and wipers come on when jumping

Check for battery drain with wiper fuse/relay pulled and with it re-installed. Sounds like the multi-switch or wiper switch has a bad wire or shorted circuit.
Any garage can check for a power drain very easily. don-ohio (:^)

There's a way to install a magnet in the column at the ignition to allow the key to work. My son did it on a 2000 Ford Focus and it worked fine. I do not know the details but surely a search would turn it up? don-ohio (:^)

97 ford contour V-6 cranks won't run

Open the air cleaner and look down into the intake while someone else is turning over the car. Is their gas or gasoline vapor being put into the engine or not?   If yes then I take a philips screw driver on the end of a spark plug wire while some one else is turning it over, to see if it has any spark.  I woudl gues 90% or all non start but cranking problems are going to be in one of these two areas.
