Sounds like your interior lamp module or circuit is acting up, keep in mind that if your blowing the fuse there is a short somewhere in that circuit. The fact that you say the lights dim then come back on after you blow the fuse tells me you have a short to power. This condition needs to be found and repaired as shorts to power will put unnecessary drains on your battery and can cause fires.
