Sometimes it feels like starting, sometimes it don't-92 Taurus

I have a 1992 Taurus 3.0 that will sometimes start, sometimes not. No rhyme or reason to it. It will do nothing--no clicking no sounds.All other electrical works.
Had the starter,alternator,ignition switch and battery all checked. All are fine. No loose wires or corrosion. Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

The relay is on the starter itself and they tested the starter--would the relay not have been checked too?

Well, if it's intermittent, the relay may have checked out during the test.

Intermittent problems can be a pain. Starter relay, (as suggested), the starter, ignition switch (not the key cylinder), neutral safety switch, or maybe even just a poor connection.

Better recheck that solenoid trigger wire... there was a TSB for it for your exact condition.
