My guess is the problem is a loosened wire to the outdoor light switch (IOW at the back door wall switch).
There are a couple of different ways of wiring this particular switch. One would have two black wires and their white wires pigtailed together. Another would have a single wire, the black to one side of the switch and the white to the other. In this case the white wire should be clearly marked as a switched black lead (but may not be).
