Minor but annoying electrical problem

Okay, I seem to have a loose wire or the insulation has worn off a ground wire somewhere. Whenever I hit a bump my dome light and interior light under the dash comes on. Hit another bump and it goes off. I have checked around the switch where the doors turn the lights on and off and nothing is wrong there. Sometimes while parked the light will come on. The shacking from shutting the door will turn it off.

I know some of you guys have done a good amount of electrical work and might be able to tell me some areas to look.

You might unscrew the light under the dash and pull it down slightly to find a plug that it is connected to. One of the wires had worn on the emergency brake bracket on mine causing it to short. Hope this helps
