The outer lights are dual filament bulbs, meaning they work 2 separate functions, brake and running lights. Either filament can burn out separate from the other, thus creating the situation you have. Replace the bulbs and your problem should be fixed.

2003 ford exloper sport xtl 4x4 brake lights dont work

Find the brake light switch mounted on the bracket right above the brake pedal. There should be power on the light green with red wire all the time. If there is no power check fuse 23 in the central junction block. If there is power check for power on the tan with black wire with the brake pedal depressed. If there is not power replace the brake pedal switch. If there is power there than it is possible that all the bulbs are burned out or there is a wiring issue to the rear lamps

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?

The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

My brake lights and reverse lights dont work. Turn signals and running lights work. All bulbs have been replaced. What should I check next?

check the brake switch, above the brake pedal, one wire should have power and when you depress the pedal, both wires will have power, if not, the switch is bad. Reverse switch I think is on transmission.

Check to see if the emergencey flashers are turned on,and they do not work.In other words,if the flashers do not work,and the flasher button is on,the lights would not work unless the brakes are applied.Also,check for a fuse to be out.

assuming you have brake lights and marker light, I would check the socket for voltage, both the contacts and probe the wire (Brown) for could be a bad socket.... if no voltage, trace the "Bwn" wire back and keep probing til you find voltage, check the connector in the trunk on the LT/RT side also...hope this helps you...GL
