How many interior bulbs does your car have? Try removing all of them and then put in a new fuse. If the fuse works for a day then the problem is after the bulb(s). If you have more than one bulb, then try one bulb at a time and this will help as to which bulb has the problem. Make sure to change to a different bulb if you find one does blow the fuse then remove that bulb and try a different bulb socket and repeat the test. It is most likely a hot wire that has a rub in the insulation and touching the car body and being a slow leak it takes a while for the fuse to heat up and blow. You could also measure the voltage to each socket and that may tell you which line has the problem.
