Hard to say what is going on without seeing the car.
If I were you, I would take it back the shop that repaired the "short" last week and let them know the repair did not work. Tell them you are disappointed that you once again don

A short in an electrical circuit is a defect that allows current to bypass its normal path. It may be possible that something was rubbing or vibrating on a wire in your headlight circuit that cause the wire to touch some metal, or another wire in your vehicle. The technician may have fixed the wire, but did not fix what caused the wire to short in the first place. If this is the case, I would expect the technician to repair the wire again and fix the cause of the problem at little or no cost to you. It is possible though that you have a new problem, completely not related to the first repair. Good luck.
