since LEDs use significantly less amount of power, it is most likely a short somewhere

Are they the kind with 2 thin wires coming out the end that push in to the socket? Maybe one of those wires is crossed in the socket?

Unplug each LED bulb, one at a time, to determine if it is a LED and which one. Unfortunately, this is going to consume some fuses. Whether LED bulbs exhibit a short or not is dependent upon their design.

or take them all out, put them in 1 at a time until fuse blows then you only waste 1 fuse
