trunk light stays on when car is off. its draining the battery on 2003 Mazda Protege

I didnt notice anything with wires, but dont know where to look or trouble shoot. I removed the fuse and the light goes off. Maybe a bad fuse?

i believe the sensor for the trunk is part of the trunk latch. you can try disconnecting the trunk latch to see if the light goes out.
