Dome light help

I have 94 325I. Dome light is coming on sporadically when I drive and especially when I hit a bump. Anybody have advise what may cause this? I was thinking maybe my dimmer switch was going out.

is your window going down a bit as well? i had the same thing happen when i hit a bump, turns out it was the sensor behind the door latch being worn.
