You need to get it scanned. Some auto parts stores will do this for free, but the help will be limited. There are many codes, so get it scanned, and go from there.

Check charging system light for 2006 ford taurus

You would need to check the connections on the back of the alternator with a meter.
You should have battery voltage on the large wire and on the orange yellow wire.
The other two wires involve the engine computer which turns the alternator on after the engine starts.

I recently had a fuel level error on my 2005 Ford Taurus along with the check engine light coming on. Any idea what I can do to fix it?

The gasoline tank should be lowered and the sending unit and gauge should be replaced. The fuel pump is probably ok.

Yellow engine symbol appeared on the dashboard of my 2005 Ford Taurus.

The engine shaped dash warning icon/symbol represents the "Check Engine Light", CEL for short.
It could be because of several things that can make the light come on. Perform a scan on the car and identify the error codes . Autozone can scan the codes for free.

2005-2006 model Ford Taurus...has orange warning light in the instrument panel...looks like a little engine with a fan on the end of it. What does that mean?

This is the check/service engine light. They will go off when the computer senses a fault such as bad sensor or bad electrical circuit. Most part stores will test the car by running an engine code diagnostic scan which will pinpoint exact problem area. Most shops charge $40 which is well worth it.

2005 ford taurus engine light on

Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins.This may reset the lights timer. If it comes back on within the next few days the take it to a large auto parts store and most will bring their computer out and hook it to your car and read the code the light will leave in your car computer,then they tell what the code says and try to sell you the part.You might car the auto parts store first and tell them what you have and ask if then can read your code for you.Its usually a free service.
