Leak from Lights on Roof

I noticed some water on my dash this morning, I figured that it was from water getting under the roof lights gasket or on top of the gasket,( between the cover and the gasket). I put a little silicon between the gasket and the light cover. Hopefully this will fix the leak.
Anyone else have this happen and how did you fix the problem?

My `01 did the same, I took it in and I believe there was a TSB for it. It was under warranty at the time anyways.

Never put a hole in the roof of a vehicle or a skylight in a house.

Mine leaks too. It leaked a year or so into my console. Then last week it did it again. I am out of MFR warranty. Do you think they will fix this for free while at the dealer during an oil change?

No lights, no onstar & xm radio antennas = no leaks. Like Turfmower says, he never had one that leaked... My luck, they would all leak! Sorry if that makes me a yuppie. I don't want to find out it's been leaking until it's too late.
