Check to make sure cable (to light) isn't chaffe and shorting out, look for small cuts and places where wires may be rubbing against metal.. Also when changing halogen lights DO NOT touch glass on bulb with hands. As stupid as it sounds, the oil from your skin forms hot spots on bulb glass and makes premature burn out

Sounds to me like you need to reset the headlight housings... maybe they are vibrating very badly. ... OR, easy fix, get NEW headlight housings on EBay and install.

Fuse 16 keeps blowing when ignition is turned on (fuse for headlights), 1996 honda accord.


You have a short somewhere in the headlight wiring. I would start by unplugging the headlights and see if it still blows. If so then you might need to trace the wiring back (with the negative battery unplugged) and find where the wires are touching. If it doesn't blow with the headlights unplugged then you should just need to replace the headlights.
