Does the turn signal work? Sometimes a damaged turn signal switch can cause the brake lights to fail. Yes, apparently the turn signals are operational.
Please check your brake pedal switch, get yourself a flashlight and inspect it( it's above the brake pedal pad), it may be disconnected or defective, you can get a replacement at your local auto parts store. This happened to me when somebody stepped on my brake pedal very strongly( i was told). I replaced it and it worked as new.Good luck!
Check your Pass. side brake caliper. It maybe sticking.
Have Ford check out the Brake Shift Interlock. It is designed so the transmission cannot be shifted without the brake depressed. The Ford might be under warranty, so you could get it repaired free
look on the brake booster located on the drivers side of the firewall. the vacuum line should run to it

If both brake light bulbs fail to come on when the brake is depressed I'd check first to see if there may be a fuse that controls the brake light circuit. If there is no fuse and/or the fuse appears to be okay, the most likely culprit is a faulty brake light switch. This switch is located up and behind the brake pedal. There is a plunger that moves in and out acting as a switch when the brake pedal is depressed. It is this switch which possibly may be the culprit.
