In that case it sounds like it was an output from the light switch that 
shorted.  Either the blue (headlights) or red/green (parking and 
instrument lights) is probably also damaged, which will indicate (pun 
not intended) where to look next.

Note that if the short caused enough damage inside the switch to open 
the circuit, and disconnect the short, manually reconnecting the wires 
will likely bring it back on again.  With your cut-off switch on tap 
first one then the other of the wires mentioned above onto the brown and 
you should soon see which has the short - if it's still present.
