Could be the nuetral lockout switch on the shifter, try to start it in Nuetral instead of park.

Just a thought, but did you get two keys? It could be the chip in one is problematic so try the other key....

I need help what is the problem.

Check your power hold relay its in the fuse box in engine compartment next to the air filter, Have someone crank the engine over and over and tap the relay or just hit the fuse box and it should crank over! relay cost about $13 at parts store, I've repaired lots of focus with the same problem also goes with every other electrical problem the focus has just slap the fuse box! Ford relays stink!
