Pinch a wire against some metal? I'd pull the light assy. back out and check that. First just unplug the harness there and and check that there isn't some wire shaving in it or something weird. Something is shorted to ground.

If the fuse was not blown before you cleared your lights, then wouldn't that mean that it blew when you reinstalled them and tried to turn them on? Did you check the new fuse that you put in to make sure that it did not blow like the one before it?
