328 Interior Light Problem

In 40 years of driving, I have never run into this one! I recently purchased a 1997 328ic, with the manual transmission. I have my overhead light set to Position 1, (illuminates when the door is opened), it does this. So far,so good. When accelerating from a full stop and shifting into 2nd gear, between 1000-2000 RPM,the light illuminates, stays on until 2000RPM and shifting into 3rd gear, when it goes out. It will not come on in 1st or 3rd gear. It doesn't matter whether the road is rough or smooth as silk, the light goes on. Any ideas, is my car possessed?, what's the deal here! Thanks, maybe I should call in an exorcist.
