No Parking lights on the right side..

I purchased el-cheapo leds for my side markers.. as soon as I turn the lights on the whole right side of the car lost parking light power.

There is no parking light in headlight, side marker and tail light.
I still got high and low beam in headlights and stop lights are working in rear.

What is broken? I checked the fuses.. but it seems that each light (headlight parking, side marker and tail lights) have their own fuses.. and they seem to be ok

Any other place to look?

Thanks
Sasha

Did you put the original lights back in? The draw/resistance from LEDs is so low it can wreak havoc on the norms in the electric system. Start w the original bulbs again and let us know what happens.

Good luck

It was a blown fuse!

I misread the diagram and instead of right side marker checked the left one (Row B fuse 3&4)

Interesting thing is that blown fuse for side marker also took out parking light and tail light on same side

Thanks
