Is the fuse of the correct rating?
Does the fuse blow immediately when headlights are turned on?
If not, is the headlight working correctly

There must be a shorting somewhere and if it is intermittent, there could be a bare wire somewhere that is getting grounded intermittently.

You need to start at one end of the wiring and trace it to see where the short is located.

Fuse is correct. Yes it does blow immediately and light never comes on.

Unplug the bulb connector and test if problem goes away, there is a short in the bulb. Check for wires that have been clamped or bared due to abrasion.

If any impact damages had occurre prior to this occurring, check if any wires had been damaged.

I will do that. As long as I am the one doing it. Now I'm wondering if it would just be better to take it in. I wouldn't want to do more damage than what is already going on.

Checking electrical faults can be a costly job so you have to be prepared for that if you send it in.
