Right Rear Tail light

I have an ongoing issue with my 2013 right rear tail light.
First I was getting the message on the EVIC that the light was out, then it would magically clear. Fooled around with the bulb and everything was good for a few months.
Issue came back and that time it was the bulb, so I replaced it.
Now about 2 months later the message has came back, but then cleared in a couple miles. Last night it came on and stayed on, so I opened up the taillight and the bulb was sparking very faintly instead of flashing, I reseated the bulb and all was good. This morning, the warning was back on for my drive to work, I get to work and the message goes away as I park the car, tail light now works fine again.
I am going to replace the bulb one more time, but I don't really think the bulb is the problem.

Sounds like a bad ground wire. I would have the dealer look at it and replace the bulb housing. If it continues, you know there is an electrical issue (most likely ground) further down the line. If no other lights are affected back there, it is most likely isolated ground issue at the right tail light itself.
