How do you get the airbag light to turn off on a 2004 Ford Taurus

Might be a bad module, or something not contacting properly. If you car didn't hit anything, than the dealer can reset the module and clear the code for less than $100.

The beeping noise is coming from the airbag module located behind the glove box. It will require a trip to a mechanic to get the issue resolved.

No communication to the wheel sensors on 2004 Ford

Ford and GM often permanently "marry" the electronic and hydraulic portions of the module making rebuild more difficult as the 2 halves require a different procedures and skillsets to repair (1 is a computer board with chips and circuits, 1 is a hydraulic pump and mechanical valve assembly with some solenoids). You can try BBA-REMAN.COM, they may be able to rebuild it for you, but the majority of rebuilders out there prefer to stick with electronic only rebuilds (Typically european cars all use bosch style seperateable units available as exchange at many rebuilder shops). You may end up with faster luck trying to locate a used unit at a local junkyard that offers say a 30 day guarantee.

Have you verified that the wheel signals are in fact present and are reaching the module? Wheel speed is calculated seperately for each wheel, and processed seperately. It is rare (though not unheard of) for a module to fail in a manner that disables all sensors at once. Typically a module that has lost ability to process a signal or is grounding a signal internally will affect only 1 or 2, and the others will continue to function normally. Also solder cracks on the board are not uncommon, though again that would be very rare to affect all 4 at once.
