Check your battery voltage and cranking amps. If they are within specs then it could be bad battery cable or loose connection at starter.

I suspect your battery's cranking amps are too low. charge it up and take it to an auto store to be tested.

If it only starts with a jump, that means the battery itself is low BUT your problem is to find out WHY it is low. Is the charging system working properly? Are all the connections clean and tight? Is it JUST a bad battery? Have you tried to swap another FORD battery to try and see if it is the battery?

If the car starts when jumped you likely have a bad battery or battery connections. Have the alternator tested to make sure you are getting a good charge.
