It sounds like you either have a bad headlight switch or the relay the controls your headlights has gone bad by sticking. you, Ray

The lights on your 98 Grand Cherokee are designed to turn off when you start the vehicle. This is how they are made. Once the doors and closed and the ignition is turned on, they turn off.

The parking lights on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix will not shut off if the switch has become damaged or the wiring has a short. This will trigger the lights to stay on regardless of the input from the driver.

If all doors and hood are shut, there is a malfunction. Have the dealer look at it.

Two possibilities; the dash switch is set to ON that operates the interior lights, or one or more of the switches that detect a door open has failed.

The most common cause for your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee to randomly shut off is a bad fuel pump. The fuel pump will get worse and eventually the vehicle will not start at all.

The airbag light stays on when the computer has detected a malfunction and set a code. The failure will need to be repaired before the light will shut off.

in my 2001 4L jeep grand Cherokee the automatic shut down relay is located in the power distribution panel that is mounted between the fender and the battery. if it is labeled like mine it should be number 38 marked asd.

Take a hammer to the tail lights then they will shut off but you might have to get them replaced or somting The tail lights you see may actually be the brake lights stuck on because of a faulty or out of adjustment brake light switch.

the HVAC blend doors are either broke or on their way to being broke. I was told by a dealer it was a $1400 dollar repair

You might need to replace your PCM (Powertrain Control Module) Especially if your Jeep spudders, shuts off and tries to gas itself when your pressing the brake. That is what happened to my Jeep and a new PCM fixed it. I hope this helps you

brake lights say lit after ignition has been shut off. lights shut off after hitting the brakes.

Please provide any updates on this if you were able to get your door fixed. My driver side rear door is locked shut. It was intermittent at first but now it's not working at all.

Cut a piece of an intertube about 1" X 3" fold it over and place it in the hinge side of fill door push shut leaving a small 1/2" sticking out.

Possible fuel pressure bleed down. Have the fuel pressure checked to see if it holds after engine is shut off.

Relay. The relay is located under the bumper, under the passenger side headlight.

shut the lights off when you leave

No. The lights are switched independently of the transmission.
