Dome lights, wipers not working

When I opened the door the dome light comes on ,but when I start the truck it goes out,also the wipers work with the key switched on but go off when engine in started.
Wipers go on and off when driving . Problem just started ! When lights go out you can hear a relay click and again when they come on.

Describe your situation for each step (acc, off, on, start):

At each turn of the switch describe what is on and off (wipers, dome).

the wipers could be the multi-function switch/lever. my old truck would randomly turn on the wipers while driving. I replaced the switch and all was well
