Default L200 Dome light metal looks burned up like a fuse

On my L200, some of the dome light metal looks burned up and missing (looks a little burnt on the plastic underneath), under the door bulb. I believe all three of the light bulbs are working okay, but wonder if this might effect anything? Should I be worried? Should I repair it?

I'm trying to resolve my brake lights not working, and the brake fuse keeps blowing.

I added a picture of this today, so please see my pictures.
Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: L200 Dome light metal looks burned up like a fuse, issue resolved

I unplugged the dome light and started up the car, L200 4-cyl., and now I not only are the brake lights working again, now the car can be started in park. Before I had to put the car into neutral, start the car, then change to drive, because it would be stuck in park.

I need to see about either repairing the dome light (the metal part) or getting another one. I was hoping to solder it, but I had issues with this, and I'm afraid to get the plastic underneath too hot.

Now, for the top, middle brake light, it appears that the three middle lights are on, about two lights on either side aren't turning on. I'll continue looking at this.

Thanks to this forum, I was able to fix my car on my own. Thank you.

There are bulbs missing. Looks like I need to buy GM part # 25085970 or type PC168.
I just need to confirm that the little plastic housing comes with the bulb.
