Check to confirm headlight switch is not turned to the left, could leave switch on also.

I had the same problem. Some members on this site had posts saying if you have a repop they have to much chrome on the plastic and the screws will ground to the roof. I cleaned the chrome around the holes and it works fine now. rob
