Lightbulb circuit breaker/light in ski locker

Hi,
I'll say right off the bat, I'm not too handy when it comes to electrical stuff...
I have a 2008 197 and yesterday I flipped the "courtesy lights" switch (which lights the interior side lights as well as a light in the ski locker) and the breaker popped. I reset the breaker and flipped the switch the other way to "lights", which only lights the interior side lights. The breaker did not pop. Seems to me that there is something of a gremlin with the light in the ski locker. Anybody experienced this before or have any suggestions?

Seems sort of silly to have a light in there in the first place, but I still want it all to work properly.

Thanks!

Well, I started with taking apart the light housing and quickly discovered that one of the wires had been chaffed by the metal backing plate. This ended up being an easy fix.
