If you are jumpering the starter, then the battery is not being drained, the starter may have a bad solenoid.
If the problem still is a dead short, a painstaking troubleshooting is required.
Remove one fuse at a time, check for voltage drop, and see which one is the culprit. Then you woud have to locate each item on that circuit and trace the wires for one that is broken, or pinched & contacting ground.
Also, check at night or in a dark garage, as trunk, door, or hood pin switches may be stuck in the open position - and will keep the lights on.
Interesting note - your having to jumper the solenoid on the starter indicates a possible worn/damaged ignition tumbler. If your tumbler is not seating on the OFF detent, your ACC may still be left on even with the key out of the ignition.

i would check the camshaft position sensor first when the fuses was taken out the car might have tried to be started and the sensor is telling it its not in time.

try checking the fuseable link if it gets hot it can cause the car to shut off it is located in the one of the power wires coming off of the alternator pigtail.

Testimonial: "Actually that was the problem, one of the fuses coming off the alternator was fried."
possible just not probable. you need to see if there is any pressure to fuel rail. if not youre going to have to by pass the fuel pump and see if it is getting voltage. if so then apply a seperate voltage and ground wire to the pump to see if it kicks on. come to think of it, it could be the PATS system(security) that shuts down the system. it will crank but will not fire. your ford dealer will need to reprogram the system.
