Battery system is good, but when you turn the key nothing. Will not "click" or fire in neutral, or drive and does not appear to be making the connection to the alternator or starter. I'm assuming its the starter relay or starter ignitor, but don't know where to go from here?

Buy your battery there is a master fuse link that burns out to protect the systems. It is a smaller section of wire Lighter gauge that burns and separates. feel for it and look for bubbled wire coating.
this could be your problem and is a simple fix. Mike
I looked at info for your security system, it is starter motor disable. I didn't see 06 ford Taurus in my database, so I looked at 05.
Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good?
We can usually do some tests to see if starter motor will crank the engine, but, if the security is the problem, it still won't start.
You can check for applicable trouble codes? Try a different key?
Need more info so we can look up wiring diagram? Dodge is the make, what is year and model? Sometimes when battery voltage is lost, it can cause problems?
If starter motor won't crank the engine, check starter motor wiring circuits. Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. I haven't checked your security system info.
If you think the problem is the starter motor, usually you can take it off, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from starter motor to good battery, at the least, it should kick out starter drive gear and spin.
the shifter has a park neutral lock out device. it will not shift out ( see left side of console for hidden cover, move lever inside for emergancy shifting) until you start motor, step on the brake and then the solenoid in the shifter box unlocks the shifter.
but that is not the problem.
back up. car will not start or the car will not crank.
turn key ,nothing happens. turn key , just hear starter solenoid click turn key , motor cranks, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr, but will not start.
Next time it won't start turn headlights on and see if they dim when you turn key to start, if they dim its most likely starter, if they don't dim possible starter switch, Have you tried to start it in neutral position? Try that, if it starts in neutral than its park neutral switch, if not could be starter switch, Just make sure you chk. all fuses and any relays associated with ignition first.
Sounds like you may have a cable issue. You should have two positive cables one supplying power to starter and one powering vehicle. if the starter power wire is not getting good connection but other is then it will only click. check this wire for corrosion inside cable
Hi cotboh7 If this truck rolled off the ramp I would check the neutral safety switch. You could also check that the shift linkage is set properly, also back to that starter, sometimes they give no indication at all, this happened to myself recently, parked the truck came out nothing, it was the starter in my case.But that has nothing to do with the truck rolling in park, and the neutral safety switch is for just that purpose, which is why it must be in park or sometimes neutral to start.I hope this helps,good luck to you.
