I have a similar problem. It's in how the bulb holder is made. If you take out the bulb you will see the metal tang that presses against the bulb leads. On my car the part of the metal tang that presses against the bulb has deformed from the heat. Periodically the tail light warning light comes on, then after a little while it goes off. I don't know if this is the problem your having but it's worth taking a couple of minutes to look at. My car is a 2000, so I don't know if in the few miles you have driven it if it will cause the same thing to happen.
