Generally, you will see a bunch of wires around the engine compartment that are screwed to the body of the car. These are your grounding points. I'm not familiar with the grounds for the Gen4 Taurus, but I would get a wire brush and check each one that you can find. I would focus on the front and driver's side of the engine bay for the lighting system. Applying some dielectric grease might also help out when you screw them back down.
