Headlights come on randomly

The headlights on my 2010 F-250 started turning on by themselves tonight. Doors locked, truck is off, and the headlight knob is in the auto position. I noticed they come on consistently every 10 mins and stay on for about 20 secs. Any ideas?

I tried putting the headlight knob in the off position and now the headlights blink on and off once every 10 mins.

Demonic posession. Happens all the time. Actually, no, a new one on me. Lets us know if you find out. If I had to venture a guess, i'd bet its in the anti-theft system.
