Electrical gremlin

On a 67 GTO coupe the dome light goes on with the brake light, has anyone ever run into this or can you suggest a starting place to look for this problem.

I find most electrical issues are grounding problems. Make sure everything on that circuit has a good strong ground.

Check the clips that hold the bulb in the housing of the dome light. The dome light is on the same circuit as the brake lights. Many years ago I inserted the torpedo bulb and managed to push one of the metal clips through the housing so that it grounded on the underside of the roof. I would step on the brake and the fuse would blow. Hope this helps.
