If it's only blowing fuses when you turn on the headlight switch then
the problem most likly lies with one of the edge markers (since you say
you replaced them and the door lights, and the marker lights are the
only ones you listed as changing that are switched through the headlight
switch). Remove those four LED's and start reinserting them one at a
time until you find the one that's causing the problem.
