The Voltage regulator in your alternator is bad, you need a new alternator. The alternator in a 1996 Ford Taurus contains a VR built into the alternator and usually can not be replaced without overhauling the alternator.
Ans 2 -This is fairly Common It is a problem with the Alternator but the alternator may not be bad. The battery light is just signaling that the cars power(12v) is unusually low. Try adjusting the belt it is probably slipping at the higher rpm's. It may seem tight and not slip at low rpms. Best and cheapest option replace the belt. If that doesnt work have the alternator looked at it may not turn freely enough to operate properly at higher rpms. Finally replace alternator.
Answer3 -Try having the alternator tested, I've seen alternators that would work at low rpm, and cut out at higher rpm's.
my 96 taurus has the battery check light on when it starts or idles. light goes out when accellerator pedal is moved higher rpm. have new battery,new starter, had alternator checked as ok. did think my belt was a bit loose. got new tensioner .noisy pulleys. so i took sepentine belt off cleaned pulleys with engine cleaner,put new dayco serpentine belt on. noise gone and battery light hasnt come back on.
Answer4 -I was having problem with a speed sensor on my 96 Taurus. The enguine was reving to high because tranny wasn't shifting to second gear. At times my alternator light would flash. The belt was loose. The belt finally became wound out and came off the pulleys. I'm here to find out how to adjust the 'belt tensioner'.
Answer 5 - I had the same problem with my 1994 Taurus. I have a little bit of experience working on cars, kind of a backyard mechanic. Anyway, I removed my alternator and disassembled it and found the rectifier had shorted out. It's really simple to replace and the part is available at most auto part stores and is not expensive at all. In fact, I performed this back in June 2000 and still going today( April 2005). Try this repair or just remove your alternator and take to any Auto Zone for diagnostics and just swap for a rebuilt/new one. Good luck.
ANS 6 - The problem is in the voltage regulator, BUT you may NOT need a new a whole new alternator ! - The Voltage regulator block is easily replaceable in these alternators and costs about $30. ( compared to over 200 for an alternator)

- The Voltage regulator block is easily replaceable in these alternators and costs about $30. ( compared to over 200 for an alternator). I have done this repair in 3 Taurus's.
- If you can't fix this, I would advise taking it to an independent 'Alternator /starter' business. I see many in Canada. You usually get a good repair cheaper than at dealer.
could be a bad alternator or battery
Something is wrong in the 94 Taurus reverse light circuit. There is probably a short causing the battery voltage to drop when the car is in reverse.
I'm not sure about all of these, but I have a 98 Taurus and the battery light came on. After a few days, the car died altogether and I had to replace my alternator. I would definitely take the battery indicator seriously and have your alternator checked.
If you're wondering about the flash mechanism, it works just like a flashlight. There is a little lightbulb which gets power from the camera battery to light up when taking a picture with flash. If you're wondering about the display, it works in the same way above only with LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes).
Problem with the SRS. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional.
on my old 1.2 clio the battery light came on as there was fault with the alternator and it needed replacing. As far as i know the battery light comes on when the battery is not charging or there is a fault with the battery.
A AAA energize battery last for 42 hours in a flash a light
A flash light battery typicaly costs $3.99 plus tax. Thanks for reading my answer (:
message center display light brighter after I disconnected the battery
A failing alternator.
you may have a bad battery or a bad voltage regulator
could be alternator or charging circuit or could be anything got to do with the battery when its draining out loose connection terminal
Remove negative battery terminal for 10 mins.
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alt belt.Also check that the belt is routed correctly - I found a wrong way to route the belt and had similar symptoms.See "Related Questions" below for routing diagram sources
On a 1999 Ford Taurus : The oil pressure warning light is just to the right of the tachometer * just above the parking brake / emergency brake , brake fluid level warning light

If your check engine light is flashing that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected
Probably a dead battery but you may wish to check your battery terminals for corrosion.
there are lots more amps in a car battery eg there about 1.5 in a flash light and in a car battery there about 300 A car battery is a wet cell battery and a flashlight battery is a dry cell battery.
This light flashes due to general system faults. This light may flash if the voltage drops below 9v. The most common cause of this light flashing intermittently is an old or weak battery. Get the battery checked and re-charge or replace the battery if necessary. If the battery is OK then check the computer for codes because one or more of the electrical systems may have a problem.
There is a battery light above the engine temperature gauge
Check the signal relays and fuses under the hood. Because of the battery is not sufficient to light up the signal light.
The recently discovered circular flashes of light above thunderstorms are called sprites or elves. So the answer you require is SPRITE
Dead cell in the battery which requires a new battery. Something can be on drawing power from the battery. Under-hood, glove box, trunk, dome light, etc. A relay that is stuck will also drain the battery.
