First check the terminals and the postive cable on the battery. I have a taurus also and I've had to replace the positive terminal a couple of times. If fine, I would take the battery to autozone and have it tested for free. If the battery is fine ask them to test the altanator while your there.

the other day when i was driving my car the battery light came on then it went off. it was flashing then it would go off for a little while. could it be the alternator or the battery? i have had my battery for six years.i drive a 2001 ford taurus.
