Sounds like the electical part of the ignition went south on you. Replace ignition switch on the column and you should have the power going to where it should be going.

2005 crown victoria sport lx 4.6. Was idling along in traffic and car just died. No stutter or anything just died. Pulled over to the side, turned off the ignition let it sit a minute, started right back...

Electronic's ,go figure .. Not all gliches set code's . Could be any number of thing's - sensor's , modules etc..... A professional Tech would have trouble finding what was wrong , even with profession diagnostic test equipment , scanners etc..... It would be better if it died an wouldn't start back up . Check for TSB'S -
technical service bulletins. Check battery an connection's , loose wire's for sensor's etc... engine . That's about all you could do. Hooking up a professional scan tool an checking engine sensor data inputs to the PCM - engine computer . There maybe a bulletin for a reflash of the PCM .

Check all of your vacume lines. If it isn't a vacume line it is most likely the O2 sensor.
