2005 Taurus wont start

I have replaced starter and starter relay. I can jump across the sylenoid and it starts right up. But when using ignition, nothing. Any suggestions

Possible ignition switch issue, but you're going to need some time with a meter and a wiring diagram to track it down. Could also be the neutral/park safety switch or even a brake switch if you normally have to step on the brake for the car to crank. For either of these I don't know right off the top of my head if they can be bypassed by jumpering the starter, but it's possible.

are you using the oem keys?

the park switches go easily on the tauri, try pulling out of gear and then back in a couple of times, to see if it will turn.
