a wire is melting

by Gary
(Corona, CA)

i have a white wire (from the ignition switch) to the courtesy light switch on the drivers side that immediately gets hot and starts melting the insulation after hooking it up to the switch. the passenger side is fine and functions as it should.

i did notice last night the courtesy lights were after market with the 1157 light bulbs in them (only one was installed). does that have anything to do with it?

appreciate any help i can get!
