    On my 2000 ford taurus the starting system white/pink line went to the transmission range sensor or(neutral saftey switch), It was the switch that was intermittantly shorting the starting circuit.

Is your dome light coming on? do the power locks work?
Your battery may be dead, or you may have blown a main fuse (under the hood)

Why wont my car start gauges and lights come on but wont crank no power going to soelinoid wire

If the security system has been reset ( no light on/flashing ) you may have a neutral safety switch problem, Will the vehicle crank over in neutral? In most cases, the neutral switch grounds the starter relay and allows it to operate. Does the starter relay connector have 2 powers? One constant and one with key on/cranking? If these power supplies are there, suspect the ground side of the relay to be the problem and possible neutral safety switch

2000 ford taurus no ignition power

In the diagram, the top wires are voltage to ignition switch, hot all the time, use a test lite to check for voltage, you can see the wire colors. The bottom wires go hot with key in the proper position, check them for voltage, also. I started to trouble shoot your power windows, figuring if you fix one component, it may fix the others. I guess it's 6 of one or 1/2 dozen of another. Several ways to troubleshoot.
Any applicable trouble codes?

2002 ford taurus, no power to ignition or accessories

you say power is present at fuse box....the dashboard one or engine compartment? Does sound like a fuse. Knife blade fuses are best checked with a meter or test lamp as they can appear good on inspection

Key switch on 1998 taurus

I would look for a direct short in your wiring harness. It sounds to me like the wires are shorted together under your dash or maybe even out by your starter. Look for a location that contains the ignition wires and the starting circut.

Car still won't start

The taurus is equipped with what is called a PATS (passive anti theft) that wont let the car start until it recognizes the key in the ignition, some things to check, first when you put the key in and turn the car to run (not start) does the theft light blink fast in the dash or is there a red on light on the dash that starts blinking? if so it is a PATS problem, the only ones I know of that can program keys are dealers, if the car wont turn over it probably is not a fuel pressure issue, the most common thing would be the PATS keys either unprogrammed or somthing wrong with the module. hope this helps
