Question about 2006 Ford Taurus
First off my check engine light comes on and off almost monthly but always resulting in it taking itself off. When I go to start the car and turn the key it turns over but takes anywhere from 2-4 seconds to actually start. Then my needle for the temp and for the fuel with click while staying all the way down, suddenly then they will go to the correct position.
The Check engine light come's on to alert the driver that a problem exist . DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are stored when the light comes on . To find the problem one should take there vehicle to a qualified repair shop . A longer then normal crank time could be caused by a number of different thing's . Testing electrical circuits , fuel pump pressure an flow testing an viewing scan data is the proper way to diagnose these type problem's .

SOURCE: car engine wont turn over
it sounds like either the key is going bad (chip inside) or the PAT's immobilizer system is not detecting a key is inserted with the correct code. If you remove the column surround you will see connectors just make sure all of these are secure, watch the yellow one do not disconnect it as its the airbag and theres a chance of it deploying.
Also try your spare ignition key if you have one.
If all is ok i'm afraid you may need to make a trip to ford for them to diagnose, the pat's system works well almost too well sometimes. i deal alot with them while installing remote starts and when they go wrong its almost always the dealer to resolve it. They have the computer software to test the system.

Turn ON headlights and try to start car.
Headlights stay lit, no change in brightness means an open relay.
Start car in Neutral, or move gear shift in and out of Park and try to start in Park; otherwise it is the ignition relay switch or the starter solenoid.
Headlights dim slightly: Low battery charge
Headlights dim significantly or shut off completely: Battery cable connections are really dirty. Remove cables from battery and clean cable clamps and battery posts. You may not need to boost to start.
Hope this helps!

that would be a wet soak concern, Likely fuel pump failure
