EF headlights

hi,

so i was driving along the other night, at around 110km/s and the headlights go out! then flickerd on and off.

after further inverstergation, it appears to only happen when on highbeam, and it kills lows and highs.

even when the car isnt running, nothing is moving, the headlights after a while will flash on and off randomly. i can hear the relay going spastic with the lights.

ideas?

ive tried replacing the relay and still get the "on, off, on off" after about 3 minuites of running the highbeam.

so where abouts in my engine bay is this fuse? is it one of the fuses in the pic, or is it somewhere else?
