Default Dome light, locks go on and off on every bump

It seem that every time I hit a bump, my dome light goes on, the bell dings and the door locks unlock and lock over and over. It seems like a door is opening, but they are all closed tight, including the back hatch. I'm guess it is the sensor that tell when a door has been opened, but I can't find those, or figure out which door is the culprit. Is this adjustment in the door and hatch latches? Do I need to make some kind of adjustment to them, or is this an electrical or computer issue? Anyone know? It's driving me nuts and I avoid driving at night now. 2003 GT Turbo.

Welcome to the Forums.
My guess is that the Remote Keyless Entry Module (RKEM) is getting a short on a bump. I don't see how a door sensor would lock/unlock all the doors - only RKEM and the switch on the door can do that.
The RKEM is above/behind the radio. Check that all connectors are tight, and look for where wires might be rubbing on metal.
