Right Lowbeam Continually Blows Fuses?

For some reason, the new headlights I purchased keep blowing the 10amp lowbeam fuse, I checked the pinning on the harness, it was wrong, so I repinned the lights harness, yet it still short out. I can put the fuse in the car, start it up, then its fine, its the second time I start my car that it shorts out every time..only the lowbeam on the pass side..should I put the DRL fuse back in or what?

What kind of headlights are they? Check your ground... as well it could be that, check the pinning on the specs to see how it should be... just double check everything?

Stock headlights, I haven't checked the actual wiring but im half tempted to tap the ground and ground it to a frame bolt.

Why did they have to be repinned if they are stock lights?
