Did you actually check the brake light switch for power in and out ?
There are two different fuses, one for each side. And the circuit includes the turn signal switch.
The third brake light bypasses the turn signals.

1. my 96 ford windstar's tail lights dont work, but the bulbs are ok. 2 I want to change my rear brake shoes; are there any special tools I need?


If tail lights don't work, check your dimmer switch for any shorts. If the brake lights don't work, then check the brake switch behind the brake pedal. You can test them with a multitester.
For brake shoes you need socket or star wrench, and needle nose pliers for the springs unless you have a spring too. If you have disc brakes, then socket set and a c-clamp to push the pistons back in.

1996 Ford Windstar tail lights and dash lights stopped working


No. All those lights are on the same fuse and are controlled by the headlamp switch.

Make sure that the fuses were all checked on the fuse panel inside the vehicle under the dash. That is where the fuse for those lights is.

2000 Windstar All brake and tail lights dead, fuse ok


A VERY common Ford issue, is grounding. a ground may look clean, but it is too dirty to allow function. find your grounds and give them a scrub with a scotch brite pad they should be nearby to the bulb, normally they rear lights all combine into one
