Parking Lamp Fuse

Last night I was at AutoZone and luckily I was there because when I went out to my car I started it up and only my auto headlights worked. My halos/LEDs, tail lights, dash lights all went out. I know its a bad wire going to the parking lamp fuse because I tried a few different fuses in the parking lamp spot and it keeps sparking and blowing the fuse. I do have brake lights and flashers.

I was trying to research it on here before posting but nothing I found helped. If anyone knows what the problem is please let me know. I don't have a warranty because I bought it used and over 6 months ago. I really don't want to have to pay a rediculous price at the dealer if it's an easy fix. Help me please!

Did you install halos yourself? I would start by disconnecting halos. Then try a fuse with only OEM bulbs.

I found it.. There was a stripped wire that my aftermarket mirrors with lights went to. I put my stock mirrors back in for winter and forgot to cap the end of that wire. Thanks though.
