    Default Right turn signal/running light socket bad?

    Been blowing the 10a fuse under the psgr floorboard panel everytime I turn on the running lights/headlights. Lose all interior lighting and ablilty to retract the headlamps by turning off headlamp switch. Suspect some moron at an auto shop replacing the bulb messed up the right turn/running bulb socket as it looks a bit blackened. Thinking I need to replace the bulb socket but wanted see if others had this issue. Thoughts?
