tail light problems

I am having a problem where my rear brake/turn signal bulb goes out and the light on the dash comes on. I go back and wiggle/re-seat the bulb and it works fine for about 1-2miles then it goes off again when I hit the brakes. None of them are burnt out, it is almost like a loose connection, is this what you guys were experiencing? When those rear lights are out it makes my xenon headlights flicker on/off.

Also something else I have noticed is if I have my fog light on and I have the brake depressed, there is a slight click-click from what sounds like the glovebox area. Any ideas?
