I had the exact same problem about a year and a half ago when I put the painless (not so painless) system in my jeep. Every time I hit the headlights the fues would pop. I took the whole thing apart, checked everything 5 times, put it back together and it would still trip. I could not figure it out, it got me so confused that I just walked away and let the Jeep sit for a few days. I came back to it and after even more taking apart, and putting back together I figured it out. The way my universal painless kit was set up was that there were two wires that ran to the front of the auto for the two headlights. There was also one small wire that ran under the dash for the high beam indicator. In my application I was not using a high beam light in on the dash. I took the little wire for the headlight "light" and wrapped it with some other wires I was not using and tucked it away. Turns out that wire was grounding to my firewall. As soon as I insulated it.... the problem was gone.
Once apon a time I played with legos... Now I have a Jeep
