Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
No crank means dead battery, jump it or get a new battery. If your battery was not dead and you didn't get fuel or it did not start you would get a cranking noise and no starting

This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.
·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

If it does not crank, and you've replaced the starter and alternator, sounds like you need to try this: Take the terminals off the battery. Take some emery cloth/sandpaper, and scrub it down to shiny, shiny metal. put the terminals back on. Try it. If it does not start: Charge/replace the battery, check main wires for shorts.
