Weird dome light problems

Got a weird problem with my car. The power is dead to all lights, Ie: dome light/trunk light, the personal lights by the dome.

Basically the car is dead untill I turn the key, or turn the headlights on.. then all the lights work, for a while.. After sitting for a few hours, nothing works again untill I turn the key, or pull the headlights on.. The outside doorhandle light wont work when u lift it at all..

Anyone know what could be the problem?

Thanks for the help!

I had a similar problem of ligths not working, it was due to the vanity mirror light on passenger side had a crimped wire from the factory where it bolts up to the head liner. After checking all the wiring in the #8 fuse I finally found the short at the vanity mirror. Your dome lights are part of the #8 wiring, including: Dash lights, vanity, and glove box. I recomend for you to check for a short in all the wiring.
