Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Brake lights sometimes work and sometimes they don't
HI, i recommend inspecting the brake peddle switch located near the brake pedal foot lever under the dash. this switch may be malfunctioning or the wires that connect to the switch housing may be lose as well.
If the switch checks out ok, i would then move to the entire wire inspection. Inspect the wires that run to the brake lights to see if they are lose or torn or corroded. if you notice any lose or corroded contact clips, re[place the entire wiring that connects the brake to the electrical current and switch.
Most of the time its bad wires but, dont forget to check the switch that is linked to the brake peddle. this is a known problem spot also. these switches can go bad over time...

THE FUSE MIGHT BE A DIFFERENT ONE THAN THE TURN SIGNALS. AND THE SAME WITH THE LIGHT BULB. IT MIGHT BE A DIFFERENT ONE ALSO.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. or more before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
