Do you mean that it has no spark? It will crank over but when you check spark, there is zero?

Had same problem with focus its a software issue they told me at oreilleys

Try replacing your PCM relay. Some call it the EEC relay also.

It wont even crank over now. Turn the key and the battery goes off. Disconnect and reconnect battery and it does the same thing. No crank and battery cuts off.

Sounds like a bad ignition switch or a bad ground to the starter relay. That is stil one of the simpler starter systems, but you need good connections, make sure the battery cables connections are really clean, none of the black corrosion, and the cables secured properly and correctly.
