No brights?

Wired in a trailer harness on the 90 today. Everything seemed to be fine until I tried the headlights. I heard the fuse pop. No biggie. Replaced it and tried again. Pop. Upped it to a 7.5A fuse instead of a 5A. I know, not ideal, but it shouldn't be a big deal. After more testing I found that the brights no longer work.
My question, do the brights run through the indicator switch like the headlights do through the headlight switch or are they on a relay? I think that may be the problem if they do run through the switch. I replaced that with a used one last year after mine broke so I have no idea of its age.
Also, does anyone have a wiring diagram of the indicator switch so I can check that out?

edit: After thinking about it I realized that the brights have nothing to do with the trailer lights. Completely different circuit so it must be a coincidence. So what I really need is that wiring diagram to figure out if the switch has gone bad or to help trace it to something else.

Thanks for the diagram. I started tracing wires this morning and after pulling the steering wheel to get at the stalk I found the blue/white for the high beams had come unplugged from the assembly. Plugged her back in and I was in business.
