Any word on an actual fix on this problem? Not using Auto requires an 8yr habit change (with the jeep alone). This is something that has not been a part of my conscience for my entire life behind the wheel. its obviously something triggering the relay.

I doubt its the ignition cylinder because it does the same thing while driving and off. I would bet a banana that its the light sensor. does anyone know where this is?

On mine I think its part of the red led blinker for the security system (if that's what you want to call it) in front of the dash. If you look at it through the wind shield there is a silver peice.

There's a thousand threads since this one (from 2011) that discuss the problem. It's the turn signal stalk. It's very common. Replace the stalk with one with your same options, ie auto lights and fogs, and your problem will be solved.

aah... my Jeep is sad... its like an old man with 18 serious simultaneous expensive issues.. like an intermittent evap issue, intermittent misfire and potential coolant leak in cyl 3, a coolant smell inside the car, a loose transfer case chain, rough idle, ripped seat leather, needs new shocks, new battery, and tires.. power steering whines a bit, and this headlight/stalk issue.

thanks for the update. if i find $80 sitting around... ill fix it.

Possessed Headlights

I do NOT have "auto" light option and mine are turning on and off randomly as well! I am going out to disconnect my new battery (to save it) that I just bought today. Even dealer witnessed the random light show with no explanation. Taking it back tomorrow for further diagnostics!
