General Maintenance & Repairs - Why do my (trans am) head lights turn on when the dash/running lights come on?

had this problem after going to the track last night. Anytime you turn the headlight switch to just turn the dash lights on the head lights come up. Even if the car is shut off and you unlock or lock the car with the keyfob when the dashlights flash along with the outside lights when it locks and unlocks the head lights turn on then off. Anyone had this problem?

Is there a grinding sound from the headlights as they go up and down?
Probably a worn out gear in one or both of the motors (which ever one is grinding)
You can replace the gear itself with a brass one for about $45 or get a refurbished motor from Autozone with lifetime warranty for about $60-70 (you have to return your broken one)

I had this problem when I first got my t/a and It turned out to be corrosion in the headlight wiring harness , pop the harness off and see if is, I cleaned mine with battery terminal cleaner and no more problems.
