Intermittent shorts are one of the most difficult ones to find, the first things to check are any added on equipment like a trailer plug or extra lights, then move onto the lights and wiring, your looking for burnt sockets, crosscircuited lamps, wiring damage, bad grounds. It might be a good idea to purchase a good wiring diagram if you plan on trying to fix this yourself.
