Default Turn Signal Fuse Keeps Blowing (06 GTO)

Turn signal fuses keeps blowing when engaging stick to reverse. Replaced the reverse light switch once, worked for a few weeks, then turn signal fuse blew again. Now, the fuse will keep blowing when car is engaged in reverse. All rear bulbs and sockets are fine. I have not checked the socket on reverse light switch, yet, but will in the next couple of days. Is this a short or a ground issue? Still a novice at all things electrical. Any suggestions or advice will help. Thank you.

Are you using any led bulbs? If so swap them for regular

Check bulb sockets for corrosion or damage wires

No LED bulbs, just standards. As I mentioned in my post, no corrosion on any of the rear bulb sockets. They also passed the continuity test on the multimeter.
