Well it sounds to me like it can be the Killer Switch from the Alarm, so i will suggest the following:

1) Disable the Alarm, you can do it by anable the Valet Parking or completly Disconect the alarm.
2) Check the Fuse Box.
3) Verify the battery voltage, it could not be enough for the starter
5) The cilinder of your key, you can check this by conecting a cable directly to the starter and to the battery only momentarly so you can check that the problem is not that there's no voltage being supply to the starter

Nothing happens when I turn the ignition switch.

If you didn't do a load test on the battery, that is probably the problem - it may work properly under light load, but it is not uncommon for it to fail under heavy load, which can also cause a problem trying to jump start the car. If that is what's happening, replace the battery.

My 2000 lincoln ls doesn't crank or click when trying to start it, it does nothing? all the lights work, radio, signals and horn, I checked the fuel relay and the starter relay and the ignition fu

Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

Won't start but power is fine

Do you hear a clicking sound when ignition is turned on? If you do then you are loosing contact on your starter, or solenoid, if you don't hear a clicking it could be the solenoid, do you hear the fuel pump priming whenyou turn the ignition on. I would start with making sure the wires to the solenoid and the starter are not corroded, if they are you will have to take them loose, scrape and grease them and try again. Hope this helps you man. Another thing, are the timing belts that your friend replaced timed right, or did they need timed? I don't know on that vehicle.

Our 1998 Ford windstar has went all EXORCIST in dash board etc.

at the minimum, since you mentioned all the idiot lights coming on, your alternator is fried. have someone put in a new alternator. if it's still acting up, have someone go over the computer.

Recently bought a 1996 mitsubishi galant S a couple of weeks ago & the interior light was'nt working. Then it started working sometimes then it quit working again. The buzzer when the door was open...

Sound's like you have some sort of a short or an open, somewhere, i would first check your fuse box,
in your engine and in your dash with a test light. make sure all fuses are working, if you had an open or short it could be possible you blew various fuses with a certain surge of power..
Second.. if you have an aftermarket sterio and all said before turns out alright. then i would pull out and check the wiring in the sterio and all surrounding it, one could have been rubbing up on another bare wire or ground out.

good luck..

In my Sonata I went out to start it and it just made clicking noises. What does that mean?

This sounds like your starter or starter relay went. Check fuses to make sure they are all good.
