I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I purchased only three months ago. It has already been in the shop three times in a month so I fee like I can help you with your problem. My rear brake light did the same thing and I just had to purchase the whole light socket. It only cost $13.00 from Jeep. I know your jeep is a 99' but the mechanic said that all Grand Cherokees from the last six years or so had the same problem. Changing the light bulb won't work. It will simply burn your bulb out. Simply buy the plastic socket that the bulb snaps in and that should fix your problem. It did for me.

SOURCE: BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON WHEN
you have a brake switch under the brake pedal in the car. usually they have 2 wires conected to it.. take the wires off and switch them. that should fix the problem the only other thing i can think of is that the brake switch under the petal is going bad

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.
