Make sure the dimmer (headlight switch) is not turned all the way to the left this will cause the interior lights to come on when it is parked or while driving.

I would look at all the switches and see if one is stuck open and if the sound is coming from the door it may be the actuator for the door looks

It sounds like you have a internal door switch going bad. It starts out with the dome light, then an occasional door open chime but never a door ajar light. Usually it is the driver door. On the later models it is located in the door. Part cost about $80 bucks. The passenger switch is much cheaper.
