It's a common problem with thoses years of Tarus/Sable,the switch is in the tank at the bottom,have to remove the tank to get to the wiring,
there is an updated tank and sensor with a clear top,Dorman products sells it about 40 bucks

I had the same problem when I had an '86 Ford Escort. I ended up just unplugging the sensor and the light turned off.
