Transmission stopped working suddenly
Yeah, same thing happened to a lot of folks. The transmission has a flaw that causes the 'stuck in neutral' syndrome. Ford will do nothing for you and will not even acknowledge that there is a problem. Check it out for yourself, there are hundreds of complaints posted on the internet and it's about a $2500 repair. Should have been a recall or at least a TSB. Ford has no desire to stand behind their product and repair/replace the faulty transmissions. Way to go and the thanks we get for 'buying American'.

2004 ford taurus ses turns over barley one short time,makes no noise when ya turn it over.Battery is full charge,lights are bright and dont dim when ya turn key
I don't think any of the previous answers came from a qualified technician. heres the deal: starting the car has nothing to do with the headlights, it cant be a bad fuse because like you said it turns over once, the alternator has nothing to do with the starting of the car, and fuel pump wont keep the car from turning over.
follow these steps in order
FIRST, take your battery to an auto parts store and have it checked, even if it shows a full charge it can still be bad.
if the battery test good, clean both battery terminals well. starting the car requires a lot more energy from your battery then the headlights, so even with bright lights there could still be an issue with the terminals.
if the car still wont start, check the battery cable itself for corrosion, if corrosions present replace the cable.
next check the ground wire from the battery to the frame of the car. make sure it has a clean connection on the frame.
if these are good and still wont turn over, then replace the starter.
