That's wierd...I can only turn on my headlamps with the engine running. If I shut the engine off but leave the keys with the check engine light on, I can only have my parking lights on.

Richard, should I get a higher rated fuse?

One thing I learned is NOT to turn the lights on without starting the engine - Lesson 1

I had a problem with my old ellipsoids where the driver-side low beam would go off sometimes and I'd get a "low beam failure" warning. Does anyone think this possible loose wiring issue is related to the blowing out of two fuses?

I'm going to redo that side's wiring just to make sure.
