Check the hatch wires where the enter the body.

Also the license plate bulb holder itself can retain water and short/corrode.

When you pry out the clear plastic lens, you'll likely find that the bulb's metal spring contacts are completely corroded away, leaving nothing but a bare wire hanging loose. Hence, your short circuit.
