Fuses keep blowing for headlight

Asked by Jan 13, 2016 at 09:51 AM about the 2011 Kia Soul +

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My headlight was out so I replaced it correctly.
Tried turning on the lights and it did not come on. I
found that the fuse was blown and tested my old
headlight that I thought was no good and it turns
out the light was still good. The headlight worked
for a day with the new fuse, but then when I tried to
use the headlights again it was blown..... Since I
did not want to get stopped I did this three times
now. Each time the headlight will work for a period
of time then the fuse blows.... What is wrong???

I would say you have a short somewhere in the circuit, either the switch, wiring or connection at the headlight. You'll have to get your multi-meter out and start probing or have your local mechanic find the issue.
