Ok I disconnected the low beams at the bulb and the fuses still blew. Now my AFS light is on also.

AFS = Adaptive Front-lighting System.

When the headlight system gas a malfunction or the wiring were disconnected, the indicator light could come on. Have you reconnected the headlamp wiring?

Is vehicle equipped with Daytime Running Lights?
Are both fuses blowing? Can you provide me the EXACT fuse that is blowing?

Which fuse is blowing? # 76 or 86 or both?

Is vehicle equipped with DRL?

DRL = Daytime Running Lights.

Headlights would automatically turn on when vehicle is running during the day.

Both fuses supplies power to the right and left headlamp low beams directly and you have a short somewhere between the fuse and headlamp bulbs.

If you have any impact damages, check around the area for damaged wireharnesses. Check the wireharness between the IPDM E/R and headlamps. Look out for signs of bared wires, panel edges cutting into the wireharnesses.

Inteligient Power Distribution Module Engine/Relay box. It is actually the underhood relay box.

Ok thank you again. The car actually was in a collision last Oct. It was on the drivers side and the body repair man did have to work inside the driver side door panel. They did good body work but I dont think they knew much about the mechanical or electrical aspects of the car. Is there something inside the door panel that has anything to do with the head lights?
