    Seems to me excessive draw on the battery would blow a fuse. Therefore sounds to me you need to replace the breaker. It has gone weak. Cheap fix.:)

    You have a short/ground in the system more than likely in the high beam circuit and you have to locate it. I doubt it's a weak breaker from your description.

    Glad you found it, they can be a bear to find sometimes.
