Good question but not enough information. Which lights? Inside lights? Headlights? dash lights? Door lights? All have their own areas. If it is the door lights then look at the switch in the door. Could be broken or loose. If it is the headlights then the relay for the lights is probably stuck, tap it with a spoon and see if anything happens. If not check it with a meter. Any other light I would suspect a faulty wiring or switch going on. Without specifics it would be hard to diagnose.
