Theres several threads on this there appears to be a high resistance thru the pin switch that causes this issue most wire a relay thats not as sensitive to this and that cures it .
Others have bought new switches and solved it

get a node. wow all those people who bought new switches, i feel bad.. just get a node and figure out which voltage you need. thats all. (what i did)


plus you can solder in the node anywhere in the line.

I've never used a diode , it depends on current you don't state what led's your running or how many.
A standard 1n2002 diode is normally adequate.

Any standard relay can be used wire te coils to the dome light +/- and wire the + to the n/o contact
and then wire the leds to the output of the relay
