Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Parking lamp fuse keeps blowing. tail lights are out, brake and turn signals still work fine. I replaced the
head light switch, now the fuse doesn't blow any longer, but with the keys off the daytime running lights
and dash lights stay on and i have to pull the parking lamp fuse.  Any Ideas of where this problem is
coming from?

Either you got the wrong switch or the lights need shut off somewhere on the switch.
