Just to be clear, you have the connector for the lamp just disconnected? If this is the case then no. Those connectors are meant to protect the connections and so just unhooking them won't cause a short.
So I would not think that is related. However, if replacing this fixed it again, I suspect we have something rubbing that wiring and possibly causing the issue.
Did you see any damage on the one you pulled out?
