Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
I would guess it's the brake light switch (on the pedal) or a loose wire or ground connection. Grab a test light or a voltmeter and chase electrons.

if both fuse and bulbs are good after that there is a push switch on the brake pedal itself some times these stick and or fail to work at all and need replacing quite a simple operation take wires off replace switch and replace wires if you touch the two wires together the lights should come on do this before buying new switch

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.
