possibly one of the sockets is losing contact or a globe filament is broke and swinging off and on , causing the trigger

I had the same problem. Had my wife stand behind the truck, and sure enough, the right brake light was not working. I took the bulb out. It looked good. Rotated it 180 degrees, re-installed it. Now it works and the 'Lamp Out' indicator is off. Hope it lasts.
