You disconnected the battery, so you have to have the key in the ignition when you reconnect. Now you have upset the immobilizer :>)

Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

First check battery cables for corrosion and bad connections check the battery voltage you should have 12-13 volts at the battery then see what you have at the starter where the battery cable is connected.You should have at least 12 volts there too.If you don't have 12 volts at the battery replace battery.

This could be a problem with your starter -- if you know a bit about engines try tapping the starter with a wrench while someone turns the key (not too hard so you don't damage it if this is not the problem). If your starter motor has a "dead spot" tapping it can get it to free itself up and might help. If this DOES help, please consider changing your starter so you don't have to keep going through this problem. If tapping the starter does not help, it might just be dead altogether. If you are doing your own work, try replacing it and hopefully that should help. If you are not going to do your own work on the car, a mechanic should be able to give you a proper diagnosis and repair the issue without too much hassle.

My ford kuga has no electrics and will not start nor does the central locking system work !! Have you any idea why?

First check the battery voltage with a multi meter the voltage should be around 12.53 v if it is lower then 12v the cars Bsi unit wont wake as the Canbus electronic system is power hungry.

If the Battery voltage is correct then check the main fuses under the engine compartment and then check the interior fuses for a possible blown fuse. As the main system function are not working then the cause will most certainly be a blown higher amp fuse 30 amp / 60 amp which protects the starting and charging circuits.

2006 ford explorer wont start and lights wont work on outside or inside. I hear a clicking sound on the inside under dash. The battery is fine checked it what else could it be?

Since your battery is fine and you hear a clicking sound there is a problem getting the power to the rest of the systems on the vehicle. That clicking noise is your starter that doesn't have enough juice to get it going. This may be something as simple as dirty or rusty terminals, a bad connection between the terminals and the cable or even bad battery cables. The ifrst thing you should do is take off your battery terminals and clean them clean them and also while you're at it take a look at those cables to make sure they aren't obviously damaged. Reconnect the terminals to the cables and battey and see what happens. If it doesn't work, you'll need to have a professional look at it.
