Make sure it is in park and retry with the key, if a no go then set the park brake and put the trans in nuetral and try it then, if still a no go then you will have to do a circuit test from the key switch to the park switch and finally to the starter relay. Somewhere along that line you should find either a failed part or a broken circuit.

I have a 04 mustang v6 it ran kinda rough like it was missing. On 1 cylinder ran maybe 30 miles turned it off and about a month later I went out to start it with only less than a 1/4 tank of gas and it turns over but won't start any ideas on how to get it running thanks
