04 Colorado halp

Have an 04 Chevy Colorado with a fuse and light issue. Coworker mentioned today that the drivers tail light was out, brake and backup lights work. Checked all the bulbs and they are good, fuse for that light however is blown. Replaced the fuse, light comes on and fizzles out, fuse blown. Any ideas what I should check? Ground issue?

Possibly related because GM does stupid shit with wiring... a few of the radio buttons stopped lighting up a while ago. Yesterday before I was aware of the tail light, the light switch and heat/ac controls stopped lighting up as well. All of that works, just no illumination.

Probably irrelivant and out dated info but traditionaly they both run through the turnsignal and light switches. But thats going on older vehicles.

The late 90s and early 2000 1500 have a curcuit board at the rear of the truck that all the rear lights run through as well.

But like i said possible completely irrelivant info

I remember gmt400 had power running through the headlight switch that like to burn up. So far researching says it could be the ground at for the tail light on the drive side, wires getting pinched by the spare, possibly the tail light harness is junk, or the wiring for the tow connector is fucking with it, again...
