Intermittent: unlock/ lock lights stay on when starting car

So I have a problem that happens intermittently: Occasionally when I start the car the car will unlock and then lock, the two turn arrows will flash on the dash, and then the dome lights and lights at the feet will go on. The lights will stay on as I drive and will not go off. They will only go off if I open the door and then shut it or if I turn the car off and then start it again.

Anyone have this problem, have a fix, or know what might be the issue?

Thanks

Have you tried holding the button for a few seconds at the top by the light?

Ive got a weird one too...

Sometimes when I open the door, none of the lights come on. Other times the normal lights come on. Other times all the lights come on, even the mood lights even though they are turned off. The LED mood light in the drivers door is sometimes red, sometimes blue while all the others are blue.
