Question about 1994 Ford Taurus
With the limited information i've got to work with, I'm going to assume
that this happened more than once and it will start with a jump.
If this is the case, the first thing to do is have a load + cell test done on
the battery. Most of the auto parts chain stores will do this for free they
will also check the alternator output. If the battery and alt. check out,
check for a draw on the battery. This can be done by removing one of
the battery terminals, then take a 12v test light and secure 1 end to the
batt. terminal and the other to the batt. post. If the light is on there is a draw. If the light under the hood works remove the bulb, then remove the
dome light fuse, if the test light go's out that is the circuit causing the
draw. Do the dome light first to avoid a false read while you remove
and return each fuse 1 at a time until the test light go's out. Be sure to
do the same at the fuse/relay box under the hood. Also be sure that
the key is Not in the ignition and everything in the car is turned off,
Before you start the test. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: new battery alternator checked
probally have a draw someplace. If you have a volt meter, you should know how to use it then, check to see what the amps are when the key is off. Unhook postive or negivte batter cable, put one end to the battery and the other to the cable and you'll get your amps. If it's under, 1 I belive you're good. If more, let us know.

Check battery charge, its possible that some parasit drain there. When you turn the key, ear some click and dashboard laights ON? Also will nheed to test starter system and components and ignition switch.
