Weird electrical problem ??

So I know jeeps have some weird electro problems, and the one I have falls into that category . So when I'm driving at night with my head lights on everything is fine until I turn right. Every time I turn right, my dome lights turn on (I actually here them "click" on) and my "door ajar" sensor kicks on, and after I stop turning and drive strait the dome lights "click" off??? It doesn't do it when I turn left, only when I turn right. It's really annoying. Any thoughts or ideas ??? I would imagine something is shorting, but where to start ??

I would start looking at the left side door latches & switches, most likely the driver's door, because it gets the most use...
When you turn right, the centrifugal force is acting on the doors on the left side and they are "trying" to open...there could be just enough play to activate the light and door ajar..

But really now folks...

Angry trucker has a good idea, pull the drivers kick panel and move the wires going into the door.

Thanks, ill check the door panel. I don't think it's the rear hatch, I rarely use it and it feels pretty secure.
