The switch on the headlight control turns them on also.

Yep, check your dashlight dimmer control. It is probably clicked into the 'On' position.

Another weird thing happened, i was driving and the gauges shut off, the rpm and the speedometer gauge both dropped to zero. I put it in neutral and they stayed at 0, then put it back in gear and the gauges came up again, put it in neutral and back to zero. Then i shut off the engine and started it again and it went away. The whole time the airbag light was on. Then about half an hour later after the whole ordeal the airbag light came back on again, i restarted and it went away.
odd?

Here's how to fix the likely cause of that problem... TJ Jeep Problem with Instrument Guages.
