Sounds like a door switch going or gone bad. Try opening one door at a time and manually working its switch with finger repeatedly. Or if you can get to the wires unhook them. When you find the one that makes them go out replace that switch.

Check the switch on your dash that has an icon that looks like a sunrise. It is the manual over-ride switch for the rear courtesy lights.
