I left my headlights on, got a dead battery, jumped it and now the headlight will not turn on. Every time i put a new fuse in it blows right away. Any ideas what is shorting?

try new cheap D2S bulbs just to test.
or perhaps it's the ballast (hope not, it's more expensive)

That won't help the fuse from blowing
if there is a shortcut in one bulb or in one ballast, you can put all the fuses you want, they will blow...

it's because i think all issues must me tried :
i will try a "cross test" :
Only ballast R+ bulb R , don't connect the other ballast nor bulb
ballast R + bulb L ...
ballast L + bulb L...
ballast L + BULB R...

the shortcut could be everywhere (on a wire too)...

the ballast is behind the trunk that you have to remove.
bulbs are more difficult to catch : you have to remove the wheel and the half front liner

so, if you try yourself, or you go to Lambo !
nothing to loose trying yourself (just takes time, but money perhaps)

there are new bulbs and ballast cheaper than lambo's

I was pulling on the headlight switch to shut them off while I had my charger hooked to it...(200 amp )My guess is it was under or over powered which created the short.. I inspected the switches board and there is no signs of short. It is probably in one of the components on the board that is not visual. I might pull meter out and check a few resistors for fun. Glad its fixed. :)

They had to replace the full rack of switches.(all 1 piece) It was around 1500. I expedited shipping.
