Anyone have any idea just what happened to my ba, the locksmith said he already tried replacing with 2 ignition replacement.
When I switch the engine, no click sound, dashboard light does not lit and radio showing CODE. all lights are working. Thanks.

Might be the BCM (Body Control Module); see if thumping the dash above the BCM with the side of your closed fist makes any difference (the BCM faults are usually dry joints or sticking relays and this often makes short term connection) if so you will need a new BCM of the same colour and number series. If an aftermarket alarm is all ever was fitted check and re-solder the solder joints where it was grafted into the wiring (usually in the ignition wires in the steering column shroud an and/or at the PCM/ECU and/or on the gear selection inhibitors switch); these solder joints especially in the steering column shroud typically overheat and get brittle and fail.

Did the locksmith go through the key teaching process after changing the locks? Did he just change the barrel or the lock? The lock is usually what fails - check the wiring at the base of the lock opposite side to where the key goes in below the base of the barrel and check very closely to see if the plate with all the wires attached is loose. Is the SmartShield (Red Hand) lock light on the dash flashing codes at you? No fridge magnets or similar magnets on your key ring?

Check the connector (C-125) in the Engine Bay directly in front of the Air Box clipped into the panel there. This connector is fed from the EEC Relay to the EEC-B and corroded pins in that connector have been found to stop the 12V Supply getting to the EEC which stops the starter cranking. More on this on the separate spin-off Australian Ford Forums here (car has almost identical symptoms to yours)
