Could be a wire that is grounding its self somewhere. Had the same issue with aftermarket lights. Traced the lines and found a "bray" or slice in one of the wires from a rub on the frame. LIttle bit of electrical tape and no more fuse issues.

Hope this helps.

I do not aim with my hand: he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
