you could thrown an inline fuse in right before the headlight if you know how. Same as the rear. But the short could be in 100 places. I would probably bring it to auto zone to get the light scanned to see if the car is trying to tell you where the short is. If it doesn't help electrical problems are a bitch and I would probably go to a dealer for it.

check the wiring harness inside the fender on the drivers side they are known for this
