Need Help Dome lights flashing on and off..

Alright guys i have 01 Wrangler and the issue im having is when im driving mainly on highway (seems to be related with higher speeds) my dome lights will come on and start flashing on and off without me doing anything at all and at times they will stay on till i come to a stop.. Now this usually doesnt happen driving through town and around speeds 40 and below but every morning i take the highway to work and run speeds of 50 and 55 and this is normally when it happens.. Very weird, now my dome lights wont work when my doors are open which i done some research and found out somebody had pulled the fuse for the door switches assuming so they can take the doors off which is fine.. The only time my domes will come on is the time when i turn off the switch and pull the key out they will pop on for that time delay then go off and when i manually turn them on with the light switch on the steering column.. Im usually very mechanically and electrically inclined but this one has me stumped, any suggestions things to look at or anybody else that has had this experience please help me.. Anything will be appreciated. Thanks.. oh and also idk if this would be related or not but the light on the dash that shows whether or not your headlights are on or not stays on all the time seems to be some connection problem in the switch itself cause i can mess with it and get it to blink and sometimes go off for a second but comes back on and stays on.. Thanks in advance for any help..

I had a truck that did something like this & it was the buttons in the door jam had dirt in them. I took them out & sprayed them full of electric spray cleaner worked them in & out several times & problem solved.
