It seems you have a short in your car which is drawing power from the battery, they can be very difficult to find, this is a method that can help narrow the search. https://www.google.com/url? sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv %3Dn5FJDgcdii8&ved=0ahUKEwjQjYS0qKvJAhVJND4KHUJWC SEQtwIINDAA&usg=AFQjCNEkpecS6yiEHQHlNoWKiBedeM_q7 w

Starter would be way down the list for me and unlikely. Try at the link....http://www.justanswer.com/ford/679a9-ford-taurus-sel-2002- taurus-battery-ges-dead-1-2.html#re.v/379/

Also, Joemom's link loads fine for me. You have to copy and past it all.
