Question about Cars & Trucks
Obviously there is a short to ground or a major draw.
You should be able to use a meter to check resistance in the circuit between the light and the fuse.
You said "switch" so have you checked the headlight switch and dimmer switch too ? And does the fuse blow if the headlight bulb is unplugged ?

Go out at night, or dusk, with a flash lite, replace the fuse with a higher amp or any spare fuse, turn out the lights, turn on the car lights, look for a spark somewhere, have people standing around engine comp, if it doesn't blow, wiggle wires, if it shorts out, you should see a spark, fix with tape, you should be all set.

Hi .. First I would remove the lamps, and try the brakes, then try again with the wiring harness disconnected from the housing, to see if you can isolate the problem to the lamps, the housing, or the wiring. If it is the wiring , then you will have to trace the harness back toward the front of the car looking for any place where the insulation on the wire has been damaged .
