courtesy lights power locks

after been sitting for a year I put fuses in my courtesy lights and power locks and they worked fine for about 12 hours.. I put new courtesy light in passenger door during the day and by night none was working..the fuses holder won't accept fuse and blows once touching holder. then I realized locks wasn't working the fuses are next to each over. using my 12v test light one side gets positive current in fuse box but different side on each of the fuses. I have 1983 Buick park avenue... any ideas?

look inside all of the cigar liters . you may find something that does not belong there. such as coin , gum, gum foil. screws nuts ect. kids put all kind of stuff in them. if you find nothing, start looking for a pinched wire feeding all of the different accessories. console light- hood light- trunk light -door panel light- courtesy light- and cigar light, good luck finding shorts can be fun ??? if you have an old signal flasher, you can put a couple of wires with alligator clips on them and hook the in place of the fuse, it will click till you find the short-- you might want to add a light bulb in between the flasher and the alligator clip. as a test instrument. it works for me in a pinch. the light will flash.
