I've had problems with my lighting before, but that's just spooky. Sounds like a bad ground. The ground may be coming undone and the light may then get power to turn on. check the fuses and your switch. Is it both the brights and lows?

Just the low beam. And only the left light.

Either a bad fuse, bad relay, or bad ground...
