Automatic Lights

I recently purchased a 2012 Grand Cherokee and have noticed some weird things. Tonight in pitch black my automatic lights would not come on. I had to manually turn the lights on and when I would turn thm to auto the lights would not stay on. Has anyone ran into this and is there anything I can do.

Re: Automatic Lights

Adding my '12 with 105K miles to the list, auto lights on failure. Not the sensor, I turn off the JGC motor, restart the motor, switch to A for auto headlights from OFF they come on. I'm having other issues like intermittent interior door lights (around the handle and map pocket), sometimes on sometimes off, stall after start, no horn and sometimes works rain sensing wipers. I'm blaming the TIPM for these random on / off / on failures. Waiting for my letter a module is at the local dealer. I so much enjoy the car I'm willing live with these problems and hoping the new TIPM will solve everything!
