Check the little fuel pump shut off box... owners manual will tell you where it is and how to reset it. I had the same thing happen a few days ago.

lol, told ya. Funny how many people get stumped by that little contraption.

I was, for a few minutes, until I remembered what one of my auto class instructors said... on a lot of Fords, there's a little inertia switch... if it won't start, check and reset that switch before doing anything else.
