Try spraying WD-40 into door handle and lock cylinder. I did this on both my 99s after reading on another site and the problem was solved instantly and has not come back (fingers crossed, prayer said!!).

Do I have to pull out the Fuel Tank to change fuel pump in a 1998 ford taurus

The fuel pump is inside the tank, so pulling the tank is a reasonable way to get to it. You may be able to pull it from the top of the tank without pulling the entire tank, depends on how they put it in. I honestly don't remember pulling the tank on mine when the pump went bad.

When im driving my 1998 ford taurus the car dies everytime i use the lights. and battery goes dead.

you should check the alternator to see if it is putting out the voltage it should. (13 to14 volts) If not the car is draining the battery until it quits running. putting the lights on would just speed up the process

98 ford taurus wgn se door ajar light wont go out

The switches that activates the door ajar are located on the body frame. For front doors try looking between the hinges, on the frame of the body cavity. Might have a rubber grommet around it. On the back doors, look on the frame of the body cavity near the hinges.

How do you take the headlight out of 1998 ford taurus se?

Use a screw driver to release the plug retainer on top. Remove plug. Turn collar 1/8th turn to remove. Wiggle bulb and pull back. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil on your skin is enough to shorten the life of the bulb.

Push new bulb into place being sure the retainer is on top. Reinstall collar and plug wire.

You may need to remove the battery to get enough room for your hand on the driver side and the two hoses on the passenger side.

I just did it and it is relatively easy.
