Red face 06' Taillights, Dash lights, Parking Lights Fuse #6 keeps blowing, replaced all bulbs

I have a 2006 Chevy Malibu. My problem is that Fuse #6 (rear panel in the trunk) keeps tripping. I have no taillights, parking lights, and dash lights. I replaced all these bulbs (except the dash lights) using the 3157 bulbs for the front and the 3057 ones for the rear. I use the 10a fuses.

The fuse keeps blowing. I replaced the relay with a simular one just above the Fuse #6 and that still doesn't fix the trips.

What more can I check? Can I bypass the dash lights somehow and just have my taillights working?

I recall there is a common problem with the wiring where it passes from the trunk of the car thru to the passenger compartment. I would guess it's shorting to the body at this location.
