this does not sound like a fuse problem. seems like a wiring issue. You probably have wires shorted together, and/or shorts to ground somewhere.
Brake switch is a good place to start, make sure it's working fine. To find the wiring issue you will need electrical diagrams, so get yourself a repair manual for a 1998 Explorer.
Look at connectors, see if you can find components or connections where all the brake light and tail lights connect to together. Using a multi meter you should be able to pin point the issue if u follow the wiring from the battery to the lights using the diagrams and checking connectors.

check your break pedal.. I had the same problem. It wasn't the switch, it was the part of the pedal itself that presses the switch.

I had the same problem and found out that both light bulb sockets had corroded/burned contacts. After cleaning and applying dielectric grease, they worked perfect again.
