Not a very detailed question... Perhaps your starter is bad. What do you do to get it to initially start?

Crazy as it sounds my 2006 ford taurus did the same thing. Sometimes it would work and sometimes not. Its the starter. Never did drag or do anything to make you think of a starter as an option. Runs as good as new again. Hope this helps.
