My 2013 AWD Flex won't start this morning.  It's trying, sounds like plenty of juice, but it just keeps cranking and not starting.  No system warnings or warning lights.  It's in Park.  It has over half a tank of gas.  Oil life around 50%  Nothing obviously wrong.  I'm in Michigan and it's cold this morning, but it's been colder.


Funny thing is we left the car over the weekend to take Amtrak to Chicago.  Came back late last night and it started just fine, even with the remote starter.  No issues and drove home OK.  Tried the remote starter this morning and it tried to start and then gave up.  Went out to try starting it manually and the same thing happened.  I've been out several times to try with the same results.  Everything powers up just fine, it cranks, but it just won't start.  Steady even sound trying.  No sputtering or variation.


Car has just under 60k.  Bought it last summer.  First time Flex owner.


I'm low on sleep, have to go to work, have a Dr appointment this afternoon, and this is now blocking in the other car.  Not a good morning.


Any ideas?

Would like to find out how you got this resolved, if this was in February.  I have 2013 Ford Flex, 66,000 miles, have had to have it towed twice, when it would not start.  Full tank of gas the second time.  I drove it for 45 minutes, got out to run and errand, and then it would not start to get me home.  After getting it off the tow truck at the dealer, of course it started fine, and has started every time they have tried for the last two days.  This is exactly what happened the first time I had it towed.  So it seems like the jiggling on the tow truck gets it to start.  Codes show nothing.  Tow truck driver kept saying it was the fuel pump, but as I read more on this site, sounds like it might be the ignition switch.  But they won't fix until they diagnose the problem.
