Have you physically checked the brakelights and parkers come on ?

There is no reset for this............

As snap0964 says make sure brake lights are actually working including Eye level light

also make sure globes are correct wattage and fitted correct way around
check brake fluid level and verify it is not the handbrake warning that is coming on

failing finding any faults here try disconnecting and reconnecting battery -verify you have radio code .............

I think he's talking about the 'bulb out' caption near the odometer that the Fairlanes and LTD's have - it beeps as well. It monitors the brake light and rear park light current flows separately.
Yes, there isn't a reset, the system can get confused, IIRC what I did was cycle the brakelights, removed both globes, cycled again, refitted the globes, and cycled again.
