GM Dome lights are switched on the negative wire. The power to the dome light is constant so if it can find a ground either through a stripped wire or faulty switch it will come on. Once you turn the dome light on it has a constant ground, therefore stops flashing. Most common culprits of this are the door switches witch create a ground when the doors are opened. They are located in the door jamb.

Check the Dome light resistor , it should look like a flasher i think , this works as a thermal delay switch . Not sure of its location though . Also , Try to replace the bulb
