Default Cabin Light Switches On When Engine Cranked ; Normal ?

Hi

I have ben observing this for the past one week inmy swift vehicle. My cabin light is in the door operation mode always. When I open the door, light comes on, and when I close it and put the key inside the key hole tweak it a step, light goes off.

Now comes the interesting part. When I crank my engine the cabin light comes on momentarily and switches itself off when the engine comes to life. Is this normal? Or Am I missing any electrical connections in here. Wonder why its happening like that ?

Thanks for your inputs

Possibly a short somewhere. Have it checked.

It would be more normal in the opposite - when you crank, the supply being cut momentarily.
