According to the owner's manual for a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport (2 door) in the fuse panel at the end of the dash (visible with driver's door open) in location # 13 there is a 15 amp fuse for stoplamps, high mounted stoplamp, and speed control. With the third brakelight working , the fuse must be good. Have you checked the 2 bulbs for the taillights/lower brakelights to see if 1 of the filaments is broken in each of the 2 bulbs ?
Defective or out of adjustment brake light switch.
Where is brake light fuse for 2004 Ford Explorer located
Blown fuse or defective brake light switch.
Depending on the year, there may be one fuse for all three brake lights, or two fuses, one for the highmount brake light and one fuse for the two lower brake lights/tail lights. So, if all three brake lights are out, it could be just one fuse or perhaps the brake light switch which is on the brake pedal metal arm assembly.
check brake light switch on brake pedal maybe getting bad
Could be bad brakelight switch or blown fuse
where is the fuse box locations on a 1992 ford explorer?
check the brake light switch. located on the brake pedal it may be bad
Could be, a blown fuse, burned out bulbs, bad brake light switch, or an improperly installed brake light switch.
Check the bulbs - they are double filamented- smaller for stop and larger for tailights
I hate to ask , but did you check the bulbs ? The tail light portion may work fine , but the brake lights don't if both of the bulbs are bad .
What year is the Ford Explorer ? There could be a separate fuse for the lower brake lights
check the brake light switch it might be sticking. located under the dash connected to the brake pedal
The brake lights and the tail lights are separate circuits. Check the brake light fuse, then check the brake light bulbs, then check the brake light switch.
The brake lights are a separate circuit from the other lights. Check the fuses and bulbs. If fuses and bulbs are okay I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault.
check the brake light switch above the brake pedal
On my 1996 Explorer, when you set the park brake, the DRL lights shut off.
Check bulbs Check sockets for Hot and Ground Check fuse Check brake light switch
To replace the brake light on a 2000 Ford Explorer, remove the screws holding the brake light in place. Gently, but firmly, pull the brake light out of the vehicle and replace with a new one.

Sounds like it could be a problem with your brake light switch mounted on the arm of your brake pedal under the dash.
Sounds like you have a problem with your brake light switch under the dash, mounted on your brake pedal metal arm assembly. I know if I get my head down near the brake pedal and push the pedal with my hand I can hear a loud click noise when the brake lights come on. I'm not a mechanic, but I've wondered if the brake fluid level is down in the master cylinder, does the brake pedal drop enough for the brake light switch to turn on the brake lights ?
That warning light means a light bulb is out. Check all of your brake lights (including the brake light on the rear dash!)
Check the brake light bulbs, Check the brake light fuse, Check the brake light switch, In that order.
