Horn/headlight Fuse blows!

Hi,

In the past I installed a HID kit but when ever I pushed the horn the fuse would blow (no 21 IIRC)

Recently I bought a new kit from HIDs4u, slim ballast 6000k; the same happened again. So the problem lies in the HIDs..ok so I changed back to the original halogen bulbs but after pushing the horn, the fuse blew again!!

Can anyone shed any light as to what this problem may be?!

If you unplug the horn then press the button,if the fuse does'nt blow then it's a faulty horn, don't know where the horn is though as i hav'nt had my civic long.
