    i have the same problem
    i have a 86gt. i changed the oil yesterday replaced my left front head light. within a few hours after i realized my back brake lights were left on even though i shut off the lights. it ended up draining my whole battery. Today i removed the headlight that i replaced and noticed burn marks by the connections on the headlight. i reconnected the battery to realize the back brake lights were still on. something isn't grounded thats why there is a spark when i reconnect the battery.
    what do you think it might be?

Right at the brake pedal there is a brake light switch that can stuck in the closed position keeping the brake lights on. One way to test it is by removing one of the wires to it, if the light shuts, must be replaced.

1994 Taurus seems to lurch backwards as I'm driving, as if its being pulled back. Wheel smells like hot metal after I stop. Bad brakes or something worse?

It appears that you have a dragging brake and knowing ford it is probably a stuck hand brake rod in the brake calipher.. Raise the vehicle from the ground and see which wheel you cannot turn freely. You may have to get a new calipher in you cannot free up the unit.

Parking brake light is stuck on after releasing the brake handle. Is there a tension adjustment for the cable somewhere that can be tightened up?

of course there is. but befor you go near that...check your brake fluid. when brake fluid is low, that will cause the parking brake light to stay on.

Brake lights

check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. make sure its up to the MAX line. there is no reset for the brake light. either the fluid level is low or the level sensor in the master cylinder is faulty. you may want to take the car back to the person that performed the repair and have them make sure there are no leaks.
