Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
These are not really sensors but switches. The low coolant one if the tank is full is defective it is located in the coolant recovery tank. The door has a defective door ajar switch in one or more of the four doors, have a dealer scan the systems control module for id of which sensor it is, to replace them requires the door be taken apart a very time consuming job if you have to remove all 4 door panels.

Check the ground on the passenger side rear lights, it's likely bad. As for the hazards, sounds like a bad flasher or fuse.

Access your fuse box and check the fuse labled- rear tail lgts,turn sgns, that fuse is blown, replace the fuse with the same value fuse, while your under there, on the fuse box or next to it you'll find 2 round plug in components, about the size of a Marshmellow, one of these is your flasher unit and the other is for your turn signals, replace both of these, even though one may work, it's just good sense to replace both, that shoud fix your rear lighting problem. good luck.....

i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.
