I would suspect you have a bad door switch on one of the doors or liftgate. They are usually plunger switches. Try pusing them in one at a time and see f the lights go out. Hold it in long enough to account for the time delay.
please rate if this helps you.

Generic Electronic Module (GEM)/Central Timer Module (CTM) Controlled Functions
The generic electronic module (GEM) is equipped on four-wheel drive vehicles with power windows. The central timer module (CTM) is equipped only on two-wheel drive vehicles without power windows.
GEM/CTM diagnostics are compatible with New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester.
The GEM/CTM incorporates the functions of several different modules into one, and offers diagnostics to easily locate and repair concerns affecting the subsystems that it controls.
The GEM/CTM constantly monitors the systems under its control and reports a concern in the form of a diagnostic trouble code (DTC). A DTC can be retrieved with NGS Tester through the communication link.
NGS Tester is a menu-driven tester that allows the user to run specific tests. NGS Tester can isolate faults in the GEM/CTM subsystems through a symptom-driven diagnostic procedure. Connecting NGS Tester to the GEM/CTM communication link will not alert the GEM/CTM. If the GEM/CTM is "asleep" when the diagnostic connector is plugged in, the GEM/CTM must be "awakened". If the communication link cannot be established, it is advised to turn the ignition to RUN.
The GEM/CTM has a sleep function to minimize battery consumption. During the sleep mode, the GEM/CTM turns off all outputs and monitors only the following:
- Door ajar (driver door, passenger door, liftgate, LH rear and RH rear doors).
- Key in RUN or ACC.
- Two-step unlock switch (unarm switch).
- Digital TR sensor.
- Illuminated entry request (remote anti-theft personality [RAP] module).
If a change of status occurs at one of these inputs while the GEM/CTM is asleep, the GEM/CTM will "wake up." When the GEM/CTM awakens, it performs an internal self-test, and begins normal operation. At this point, the GEM/CTM will have all of its functions operational.
The GEM/CTM will go into the sleep mode immediately after both of the following conditions have been met:
- Key in OFF or key not in ignition.
- After 45 minutes with no change in any wake-up input.
The GEM/CTM control system has two modes of operation; the normal operating mode and the tester-dependent diagnostics mode.
The normal operation of the GEM/CTM can detect errors. An integral part of the normal GEM/CTM operation is the continuous diagnostic capability. Continuous diagnostics detects errors and changes the GEM/CTM control strategy. There is no warning lamp for the GEM/CTM; therefore, a DTC concern will direct you to the GEM/CTM. Examples of faults that may be detected during normal operation include:
The GEM/CTM can only detect open circuit/short to GRD faults when the GEM/CTM in not energizing a load, and short to battery faults when the GEM/CTM is attempting to energize a load.
- GEM/CTM continuous self-test (RAM, ROM, EEPROM, A/D checking).
- Output driver monitoring (open circuit/short to ground [GRD], short to power).
- Illogical combinations of input signals.
