Question Rear door + interior light wiring question

Hi, sorry one more electrical issue then I'm all buttoned up.

I just reconnected the rear door courtesy light switch, and it works, but it only causes the front interior courtesy lamp to light. Bulbs both tested and working.

During testing to find wires, I let a purple wire get hot - one single purple wire with a female connector. I am guessing that used to go to the rear wiper or something when it was a SW.

Anyway, there is a pair of purple wires that go into the connector that feeds the rear interior light - no power to any of the purple wires - the separate single female one included. Did I melt something or is there an off the grid fuse somewhere that I fried? I checked every single fuse on the under dash panel.

Found this reference: Purple (Accessories fed direct from battery via fuse)

On this page - anyone know where this "via fuse" is located?
