    I had the same thing happen in the spring, ended up being a rear tail/brake lamp, the filiment was weak and would contact sometimes and not others, same as you only happened when I was driving and seemed to do it all the time but when I checked the lights they always worked. Took me a couple days to get to the bottom of it, replaced the bulb and been fine since. I would just keep checking the lights, maybe even tap on the tail lights with you hands to giggle it...hope you find your issue!!!

    I had a problem with my 05's tail lights. the socket where the bulp plugged in was worn and corroded. While driving, my light out indicator would go on and off intermitently. replaced the socket and problem solved.

    I have had problems with the directional lights on my plow. Bad ground or weak filament will cause lamp out signal.

    I had an 02 ram did the same thing! Replace the bulbs in the tail lamps and it will fix it.
