Need more information. Does the starter motor crank? Have you checked for spark? Is the courtesy lamp fuse blown? If you turn to ignition can you hear a whirring noise in the boot that lasts a second or so?

Easiest way is to put it on the ol CAM tester if you know your local ford mech to check for fault codes.is the engine light on? check all your fuses, turn the key on, can you hear the fuel pump whirring? next you need to check for spark, get someone who knows how if you dont. Does it crank at all still? Does it sound like it at least wants to try to start?
