Question about 1998 Ford Contour
I replace the brake petal switch and the light bulbs and check the fuses does it have a relay.?
Assuming fuses are ok and the new bulbs are the correct fitment(there are many different types) check the new pedal switch again.
some are adjustable for length. check when you push pedal down that the switch is NOT still in contact with the pedal. if it is then you may need to adjust it to make it shorter, sometimes just pulling the pedal upwards can be enough to do this.

SOURCE: brake light issue.
the brake lights switch of the expedition is connected to the cruise control system. get yourself a wiring diagram and sort out the problem. i have read of fires being caused by that problem so be carefull.

yes there is. Above the brake pedal there is a switch tat turns the lights on when you press the pedal. It is tough to replace due to the lack o room to put your hands. but is an inexpensive part.
