The car will start with the fob. When the key is placed in the igniton, the engine shuts down. I am getting a "starting system failure" message.

It's a proximity key that must be in the car to start it, and may have lost its programming. Thy this, I can't write it out, besides it a pdf file that can't be copied and pasted Page 145 in your owners manual. if you dont have the manual you can download it here http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/11edgog1e.pdf

Pretty sure its the chip in the key. I've got full power. Car starts with the fob, shuts off with the fob and the alarm works. When I start it with the fob, it shuts down, as soon as I put the key in and turn it. Spare key is on its way. Hoping that will start the car. Thanks for the quick response.
