Sounds like the immobilizer has triggered. Could be the key is dead, do you have any others you can try? Have you checked the fuses to make sure none have blown? Internet searches suggest that + getting it connected to a Ford IDS system.

Ford's diagnostic software. Any Ford dealer or some independent mechanics.

The immobiliser in the key is different to the remote locking, or even key locking of the car. Normally a key with a flat battery can still start the car as the immbolisier is read just by being close to the ignition barrel.

I would agree, best bet is to probably take it to a Ford dealer, or someone who has Ford equipment to connect to the cars computer.
