Interior Light Problem (Dome / courtesy light)

Hi All.

I've had my SLK for 6 months now and love it. Just a little problem I would like to solve:

The interior light above the windscreen stays on when the doors are closed. It doesn't switch off, even when the car is locked it stays on.
I've read posts about door pins and PSE faults etc but no one has mentioned that when the roof is folded down, the interior light works fine.

When closing the roof it seems to come on when the top part connects with the car. Is there a switch, or wire that could get trapped??

All and any suggestions are welcome.
