My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If you have had any after market components like an after market remote start or alarm system installed the wiring for it or the control unit that controls the after market system may be damaged/shorted causing this here as I have seen these cause electrical faults before.If you do have any after market component wired in I would see if it is wired back out of the vehicle temporarily putting vehicle wiring back to factory if this corrects the fault.If it does then the after market ecu most likely needs wired in differently or replaced.If you do not have any after market components installed at all let me know so we can continue from there.

It sounds to me like your comfort control module is the focus for this- usually fuse 14 pops when the dome light shorts out, but I'm thinking since you said the hatch pops, you may need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the hatch, and check the connector at the trunk latch. Often they get moisture and corrode pretty badly there.
Let me know either way and we can continue if necessary.
no, not just if you are disconnecting the latch or a module.
note that the drivers door illumination is direct from the headlight switch, but the other doors are illuminated through a signal from the comfort module, that is why the other switches are not lit.
