Have you removed and cleaned the bulb socket?

The higher wattage bulbs should not make a difference, but they will last longer and can be seen a lot better.

Volts, amps and watts are all in relation to each other. Higher wattage at same voltage equals higher amperage.
Not saying that's your problem..... Just saying
If voltage is a constant and you put in a brighter bulb ( higher wattage ) you will increase the amp load of the circuit

Check the license plate lamp wiring harness. You'll have to completely dis-assemble rear door panel to access and remove. As well as rear power lock assembly to gain access to housing where license plate lamp housings reside. Start there...I'd make a very confident bet that is where the short is.

just a thought, behind left side tail is also the birthplace of trailer wiring harness. I have encountered a pretty nasty PO ghetto connection, that caused me some similar problems.
if all else fails, you might have a look there.
