Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Keys left in ignition overnight with keys in accessosry ''on'' position. Dashboard red light(s) were ''on'' when found. Battery & starter crank eng'ine just fine. Appears to by fuel problem. Fuel pump reset switch has been pushed. Fuses in engine & passenger compartments checked out ok.
Is the fuel pump turning on? turn the key without starting and listen for noise coming from the back of the car it will come on for a couple of seconds and stop. if you don't hear anything are you getting voltage to fuel pump relay? located under the hood in the black fuse box between the battery and radiator, there is a yellow 20 amp PCM fuse check and make sure it is not blown. grab the owners manual fuse relay section, locate the PCM and Fuel Pump relays, ( they are interchangeable) They are two small black relays, with help of another person, check that the relay are clicking by turning the key on and off and placing a finger on the relays, if they are clicking. you will need a test light or multimeter to check for the voltage at the relays, remove the relays and there should be voltage on one of the slot in the fuse box where the relay was, if there is voltage there replace or swap the relays first if the engine doesn't start and you don't hear anything in the back of the car fuel pump running for a couple of seconds then you will have to drop the tank and replace the fuel pump.

Ive never seen a car start up just fine after leaving the key on all night. I would try jumping it. If the voltage is too low it wont start.
