2001 jeep grand cherokee lights turn on and off by themselves

I have 2001 jeep grand cherokee limited and if I leave the lights switched to the auto lights setting, the lights will randomly turn on and off by themselves. This will happen after I have gotten out of the jeep and the key is not in the car. If I turn the lights to the off position the problem doesn't seem to happen. So its seems to be some issue with the auto setting of the lights. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this and what might fix the issue?

    I have the EXACT same problem. I'm thinking a problem with the multi-function switch, but have no proof. Have wiper problems as well

My 2001 jeep grand cherokee limited back up lights wont work. No fuse listed just for b/u lights.

You have a switch on the transmission that turns the back up lights on when put into reverse. It may need adjusting. It has to be done with carefulness. The car has to be in reverse and the switch adjusted at the same time until the back-up lights come on. It may be safer for a shop to do this unless you feel comfortable doing it.
