So it happens with the tail lights unplugged? Did you unplug the ones in the center? Tag lights? It almost sounds as if there is water somewhere inside the lights. I was going to ask about water in the tail lights but if they are unplugged then I don't think it's that lol. However there are other lights on that circuit. Does it happen only when the headlights are on or parking lights?
If it does it with the parking lights then anything that comes on with the running lights would need to be checked.
If It doesn't do it until the headlights are on, look towards the headlights. On my 03, the insulation on the wires inside the headlights are cracked down to bare wires in some spots, when i go to do my retrofit i will be rewiring them to take care of that issue.
If there is no water to be seen, I'd start looking at each plug and any wiring near them. Sometimes these fray over time if there are tight bends near the bulbs/plugs.
Good luck because it sure does sound like you have your work cut out for you.
