Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Had a similar problem with my 97 power stroke. somehow the plug in the wiring harness below the bed at the rear of the truck vibrated loose I had all lights but brake lights. Or it may be a ground wire issue. Good luck. Let us know how it works out.

Sometimes even a new bulb will not work. If you have a Digital Multi Meter you can check that you have power going to the rear. I know that sometimes when a vehicle loses a bulb in one end that it can make the other end stop working. With that said, I suggest that you double check to see that the front works. I used to own a 98 Cavalier RS with the 2.2 liter motor and I know that there are fuses under the hood and behind a little door on the drivers side in the car. Might check fuses under the hood also.

best bet is get a WIRING DIAGRAM. you should have current (12 volts) on both sides of the fuse that works the tailights.if not there is probably a broken wire or a shorted wire leading up to the fuse. you kinda need the wiring diagram so u can see in which order the current "flows" which will help point u in the right direction.

This is a problem I have been
seeing more and more of lately. The brake light circuit goes through
the Lamp Outage Module (LOM). When the LOM senses a inoperative lamp,
the Vehicle Information Center (VIC) displays the data to the vehicle
Here is how to test the system (clic for zoom):
Check here for more details about the location of Lamp Outage Module (page 16).
Hope helps (remember rated this help) Good luck.
