There must be an overload (short circuit) or excessive resistance in the circuit to the headlights which is tripping the breaker... (breaker is thermal and will reset after cooling, but not FOREVER)... look for wire breaks or corrosion on terminals... Hope this helps... ;-)

    By terminals I meant the ones attaching to the headlights themselves and any and all connectors in that circuit... ;-)
