Question about 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
There is no blown fuses but lights not turning on???
Do the brake lights work? if not there is a more serious problem affecting all lights at once.
If they do, The switch unit may be damaged, have a look..
Then check for burnt wiring or damaged wiring near the keyswitch and in the engine bay. Clean all wiring connectors by seperating them and spraying wd 40 on them.

This problem is most times caused by an open circuit in the rotating contact under the steering wheel, this part is called the clock-spring contact, it supplies a connection to the airbag and steering wheel controls like the cruise, horn and radio controls. I would check the fuse as well to cover the bases, it is fuse #9 in the passenger compartment fuse box, it is a 7.5 AMP

Just found the answer on another site. Sure enough went out removed the 3 philips head screws in the steering column opened it up and walla a wire connection had pulled itself free. When my son uses my truck he always uses the tilt steering, when I get in I have to readjust it. because of this the wire connection pulled itself out. I simply pushed it back in an blinker and brake light are now working. My husband is now trying to figure a way to secure the wire connection so it doesn't pull itself out again. Hope this helps others, either by saving the cost of a dealership or machanic or from getting rear ended.

Look in the owners manual and see if they have a circuit breaker or relay instead of a fuse. It could be bad and you would not see it.
