Dome/Interior lights

trying to figure out why my dome light turns off and on intermittently while driving. sometimes the lights inside the jeep would turn on and stay on overnight. I've unplugged the fuse for the dome lights. Has anyone came across this problem?

Could be a bad rheostat on your headlight switch, but I would guess you've got a bad door switch. Try disconnecting the passenger side switch first (feeds from the driver's side) and test it out. If it still happens, put the passenger side switch on the driver's side and try that, leaving the switch disconnected on the passenger side. I've seen the switches pretty cheap online.

does it look like it has a spring on the inside? i only have it on the drivers side if thats the case. i don't know where it would be on the passenger side. and is there a way to override it. i only want to control the dome lights with the switch next to the headlight switch
