71 Chevelle Courtesy Light stays on

Hi everyone - I had to pull the back seat out of my 71 Chevelle to do some work. When I reattach the armrests the courtesy lights remain on with the door closed (but slightly dimmer). When I remove the screws everything works fine. I have checked all the wiring and cannot see any issues. I'm at a dead end and need help. Anyone have ideas on what I should do next? Any help would be much appreciated.

You have a short to ground somewhere...maybe one of those screws hitting the wires?
