You most likely have a Door Ajar switch that has stuck. The fuse box is under the hood

I agree about the door ajar switch. But might also want to check dimmer switch on dash if so equipped. Some models if switch is turned all the way to one side it will click and keep dome light on even with everything else off and doors closed.

the dome light will turn off and randomly turn on, on its own and kill my battery

It coming on randomly points straight to a bad door ajar switch.

I finding lots of info on theses switches going bad or needing to be greased or oiled. They are located on the door lock mech inside the door.

On my Taurus, I just spray some WD-40 inside the lock mechanism one door at a time till the dome light goes out. No need to remove the switch itself.
