Most times, Ford has a defective ignition switch. What happens is the metal tabs straighten out making the internal parts loose contact. I'd check there first. (Not the key side/the back side- with wires)

1999 ford escort zx2 cranks but won't start


As with any no-start issue, you will need to figure out if you have a problem with fuel pressure to the injectors, or spark to the plugs.
I would also check the computer for trouble codes.
Let me know what you find out.
