As I recall the tail and brake have the switch control the hot side, but the glove box and dome/courtesy are switched on the ground side so I would focus your efforts on those.

My level of electrical expertise is low, but it sounds like a direct short to ground.  I've done a cursory inspection of exposed wiring in the engine compartment and under the dash and haven't found any damaged insulation. Any suggestions of most likely problem areas that I should investigate first??  Thanks.
