The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.

It would either be a bad wire in the circuit from the brake light switch on the brake pedal to the bulbs, OR the bulbs have 2 filaments in them and the one that comes on when you apply the brakes are worn out, OR someone put the wrong bulbs in(single filament). I would change the 2 bulbs first.

If you are referring to the brake lights it is probably a bad brake light switch. Your vehicle may also have daytime running lights which would be on without the parking lights.
I had this same problem. If the bulbs and the fuses are good its most likely the brake switch. Its a plunger like switch on the brake pedal. Its usually the only thing on the brake pedal. Its pretty easy and cheap to change. I would start there.
normal wear and tear. Brake light switch, bulbs or sockets.

i don't know if it is a Ford thing, but my dodge did somewhat the same thing... my blinker would flash very fast on the dash and it turned out that my bulbs were out in the rear (maybe that is the problem and your brake lights are connected). When the bulbs burn out the circuit is shorted.
By the nature of the question I assume that you are referring to the tail lights and brake lights. My Explorer has four bulbs. Tail, brake turn and backup. They are all in separate compartments of the light assembly. So it could be that you have just burned out one bulb. If you are referring to the upper brake light in the rear window or at the top of the tailgate, same thing. One or… Read More

If there is no obvious damage to wiring in the trunk then I would say that the bulbs need replacing. Have you tried new ones? Believe it or not I've seen it where the bulbs do burn out at almost the same time, after all, they were all installed at the same time. If it still doesn't work with new bulbs then you have a broken wire I would think.
first check brake light fuse second check light bulbs,they should be double element third check the brake light switch located on the brake pedal
My '93 Sport does the same thing periodically. This may be a cool safety feature Jeep uses to indicate your brake lights are not working.

replace the break light bulbs?
Your brake lights are not working in a 1992 Toyota celica and the fuses globes and brake pedal switch are fine what else can it be?
Brake bulbs. You might need to replace them. It just happened to mine and it was tricky to do it. To take the brake lights you need to pull them from the sides, there is a small piece that would come out easily and then you can just take the screws out.
