This sounds like a poss fuel pump problem, do this test, get a can of spray starting fluid from any auto parts store, when it won't start remove the hose to the engine from the air filter and spray some starting fluid in while the engine is cranked, if it starts then u have a sticking electric fuel pump, the other thing u need to do is get the electronic engine control computer tested for fault codes, any Kragen or Autozone does this for free, these codes will help narrow down any problem in the system.

    Well since i wasn't givenal lthe facts make a guess based on my 35 years as a dealer tech for ford, this could be a factory security system issue, the only way to narrow it down is have the system scanned by the localdealer next time it won't start, that means u MUST leave the car with the dealer until they confirm the no start no carnk condition, if there was a magic fix for this condition I would know it after all these years and 1000's of repairs on taurus's

    You will not find this problem without the Ford dealers testing the system, been doing this 35 years absolutely know what needs to be done here, but suit yourself and ignore my advice and have a car that is not usable.

2000 ford taurus leave it outside will not start put it in garage starts fine could it be drawing dampness

That sounds like a moisture problem. If you need to leave it outside over night. i'd just try putting a tarp or a car cover over the front end of your car. this will keep most of the moisture out of your engine.
