Did you check the interior light switch near/on the headlight switch, sometimes they can be engaged without you knowing it. Please inspect and get back to me so we can continue.

The interior lights are controlled by the BCM body control module. This module sounds like is it malfunctioning causing your problem. Unfortunately the only way to check it is by replacement.
