Had that happen to a friend's Dodge Van once (long ago). Never had a good explanation, and finally gave up trying to figure it out. Just put two new headlights in, and went on our way.

I dont know why the indicator is not coming on my only guess is the wattage difference? The aftermarket lights use H1 style bulbs so high beams are regular 55w silverstars and the lows are 35w hids. But I realy have no idea.

My mustang had an issues like that... it was the high/low beam switch. If I even bumped it for the blinkers it would turn the headlights off...

a short will typically blow the fuse, hence its purpose, however as stated above the relay could be bad.

Go buy 1 bulb or borrow one from a buddy to check if it works.
