Ronald, The power steering pressure switch is located on the steering rack of the vehicle. Here is a link showing the location (number 13 in the diagram I believe) If you are getting fluid pumping out of the pump reservoir, then its either overfilled, or there is an air bubble present in the system. Good luck. http://www.oepartsstore.com/a/Ford__Taurus/54641528__6487 631/STEERING-GEAR--LINKAGE/JN92210.html

Tried the link but doesn't go anywhere but thank you

Yikes, looks like that didnt word wrap correctly. Number 15 is calling out the PSPS.
