Weird...

New Jeep owner, even if it is a 2000 Cherokee Sport, its new to me.

I noticed that when I brake really hard, or turn hard like for a u-turn, the dome light flashes on and off. WTF is that all about? Is it supposed to do that, like a Jeep thing or something, or is it some hair-ball wiring prblem that I have?

Any ideas?
