Default Weird problem

I'm not sure if this is in the right place, so mods please move the topic if necessary.

I have a 2002 WRX wagon with a 10 amp fuse for illumination that keeps blowing. I've gone as far as far as taking every single mod that requires electricity out and testing to see if the fuse still blows. Well, 12 fuses later, I've ruled out my interior mods as the source. Does anyone have any advice about where to go from here? I'd like to avoid the Subaru dealership, as my car is far from stock and this dealer will void my warranty.
Could a bad ground somewhere cause a fuse to blow? I have no wires hanging loose and I checked all electrical connections made by me and verified them as tight. The only thing I can think of is a bad ground somewhere, but I'm not sure that would cause more amperage to go through- wouldn't it cause less?

At any rate, any help is appreciated.

Well a short somewhere should could do it. I once had a short with some bare wires touching the metal in the trunk. These wires were attached to the back up light. Yet the fuse being blown was the cruise control fuse. I would look carefully at any wires you used in those mods you mentioned.
