If it has been sitting for 6 years with the same gas in it, the fuel in the tank is like varnish-and you should drain it out and refill it with fresh gas. If it has a lot of gas in it, siphon it out into large portable gas tanks, or you could try removing the fuel line from the top of the engine and turn the key on, draining it that way. If you do this, you need to be creative, like adding hoses to the disconnected line so that you can drain the tank. Doing this will also give you an idea as to how healthy the fuel pump is (the pump is located in the gas tank). I wouldn't try to start it with what is in the tank presently as it could cause all kinds of expensive problems with the fuel injectors or even the engine.

It is located in the fuel tank. It can be accessed by removing the cushion of the rear seat.

Where's the starter relay switch on a 1995 ford contour


The starter relay is mounted on the starter itself. To see if the relay itself is working, check for voltage on the small wire on the relay while someone is turning the key to the "Start" position. If you have voltage there but the starter doesn't work, then replace the entire starter and relay assembly.

Ford contour wont start


You need answer some questions first to rule some things out.
Is the starter making a noise when you turn the key or is it just clicking? If the lights light, but the starter makes absolutely no noise, then the power cable to the starter is bad or contacts are corroded. If you hear a click every time you turn the key but that is all, then the starter is bad and needs replace. Once it is removed, most parts stores can test it for you. If you can hear the starter spinning but its going real fast then again the starter is bad. If the starter is working properly (like on a really cold day when it doesn't start right away) but the car still won't start, then the starter is fine and your problem is either in the ignition or the fuel system. You may be able to narrow it down if you can read the codes, otherwise it needs a mechanic and you need to decide what is the car worth to you.

1995 ford contour not firing, wont start


Since you say you are not getting fire, have you actually checked for spark at the plugs ?
If so and you have no spark, you would need to check for voltage and a ground signal at the coil next.

Car will not start, will not shift gears no accessory lights will come on like the battery light or oil light. Will crank but does not turn over. 1995 Ford Contour


Sounds like the fule pump is not coming on, and this is because either a fuse that is blown or the acutal pump could be broken. If this is the cause hope for the fuse. It is a much cheaper/easier fix. If it is niether check the wiring/connection on the top of the fule pump this can sometimes be disconected.
