none of above, a short in the tail globe socket or around this area, as the bright filament in rear globe is also the bright glow for turn signal, a short in this line will back up heat all the way to the source , hence your switch, and you may have a too high fuse for protection to heat the wires that much, now you may need a switch after finding the short
