Sounds like a PATS issue, do both of your keys cause the same issue?

Passive Anti-Theft System. Basically this is Ford's security against being able to start the car with any key that can fit in the ignition. If the ignition does not receive the proper "ID" from the key then the car will not start.

It's possible that you're PATS system may be having intermittent issues which usually means that it should be replaced. However I would attempt the process of re-programming the keys first, I believe there's a sticky here to show the process.

EDIT: Also, it's possible to disable the alarm via the PINK/WHITE (-) wire located @ the GEM, 26-Pin Plug. The General Electronics Module (GEM) is located to the LEFT of the STEERING COLUMN.

You could disarm it, but it has no effect on the PATS on the ignition.
