I doubt that they were shorting out, it's more likely the main headlight switch is damaged from heat and this causes the headlights to blink on and off an finally not work at all. Remove the Headlight switch and then look at the large connector to it, it will be discolored from heat, replace the switch and the headlight switch connector. You can buy both parts from the dealer or in some cases better auto parts stores like Napa and Carquest. Do not use crimp connectors to install the new repair connector, solder and shrink tube the connections ONE WIRE AT A TIME!. Both parts must be replaced or the new headlight switch will fail in a very short time from overheating. If you don't have the skill to do this have it done, it is a safety issue.

Well you first need to figure out if it is a problem with the alternator or the electrical system.
The alternator should be able to handle the power used by the headlights.
There could be a short in the switch but I would want to know the condition of the alternator first.

there is a circuit breaker in your headlight switch so if your tail lights get shorted it wont burn out the wiring. and when these get older they get weak and shut down. just replace your headlight switch and all should be fine if you dont have a short.
