What would drain a car battery overnight on a 93 Ford Taurus?

If you're absolutely certain that the battery is ok (have it tested) and that nothing is being left on and that the key is turning off properly, it's time to have the alternator tested. Sometimes an internal diode can fail which will end up draining the battery. But don't just replace the alternator. Take the vehicle to your local auto parts retailer and have them test it for you IN CIRCUIT! Meaning that they'll test it with the vehicle running. They should be able to determine if the alternator diode has shorted.
