    Your alternator might be shot and the car was running on battery until it was finally drained. Now you also might have a dead battery.

    Sometimes the battery has enough juice to run the accessories but not enough cranking amps to start the car. Check your battery cables and if you're still convinced that it's not the battery then the only other thing I can think of is the neutral safety switch if you're an auto tranny or the clutch safety switch for manual. Maybe it's faulty.

    Edit: BTW, I assume you also checked the fuse in the SJB. Ford uses a slow blow fuse so unless you look really close you might not think its blown.

    actually it is probably the fuel pumps hence the words "FUEL LEVEL LOW DTE ODO DATA ERR" I would suggest you have the dealer read the codes and repair it. This is not a job for amateur guessing games. IF they say that you need fuel pumps then you can expect a 500 dollar charge. :)
