Service Engine Soon...but for what?

My service engine soon light came on months ago. I've replaced the spark plugs, the spark plug wires, the spark plug wire pack, and even the battery. Still that signal stays on the dashboard. What am I missing? What is wrong? And how should it be fixed so that there will not be any future problems?

PS. It is a 1996 Ford Taurus, V6 3.0 L engine.

The light comes on when the computer has detected something concerning the engine not operating correctly. The correct thing to do is to get the codes pulled. AutoZone and Advance Auto will do this for free. They can also clear the codes and turn the light off. Just randomly replacing parts is stupid and costly.
