When you open your door, of course your dome light will come on but with this installation, the LED strips under the door will come on as well when you open the door.

The lights ground is wired into the door switch trigger wire which is a ground when the door is open and 12v when the door is closed. Since leds are diodes this is not a problem.

your problem may be coming from a loose ground wire making a ground somewhere other than that switch wire or worst case scenario your door switch could be going bad (not likely)

This is really the only thing I can think of that would cause them to come one randomly. Hope it helps and you can get the problem fixed.

Yea, my passenger side is havging the same problem... I'll have to look at the switch because I know its all wired correctly and it only happens after a period of 15 minutes passed not instant.
