I just bought an 08 TriBeCa and having the same issue with my car...map lights and back door light come on automatically after running over a bump or making a sharp turn. These lights actually need to be open manually so I do not understand it myself. It comes on then after awhile goes off. I made an appt last week to have it checked this week but I haven't been able to recreate the issue so it would have been no help to them so I canceled appt for the meantime. Have you been able to resolve the issue?

I was able to resolve this issue. The Subaru dealership in Austin, TX, took my door apart and found there were some wires that needed to be replaced and that solved the issue. I have not had any problems since. I had also had the door switch replaced prior to that.

Thank you, I thought I was totally losing it. Hopefully it's covered under warranty as I just bought the car recently. I hope mines gets resolved as well, will post updates once it gets resolved.
