Taking the battery off a running engine will cause voltage spikes that can easily damage electronic parts, computers and such. Should never do that on modern cars, Ashley. There must be a maxi fuse or a fusible link or even an in line fuse between the alternator and battery, if it's not charging. To fix it yourself, you may have to get hold of a wiring diagram for the charging system. You can register for free at autozone.com, giving your make, model, year, and engine size. Quite a lot of repair information that is specific to your Taurus, including wiring diagrams. Look under the repair guides section, I believe wiring diagrams may be listed under "Chassis Electrical". Good luck.
