I can only assume,you checked the park light fuse?


And replaced it.


I checked my owners manual and it guided me to the blue 15 amp fuse I switched it and it blew again then I saw the wires hanging and I assumed it was because of them


Sorry I am a little new to this..

First thing to do would be find where the wire went to,i think it may go to your fuse panel if it is close to it,


But first check the for fire,meaning power before you hook them to anything.


I found the issue loose wire was stuck on some metal go figure! Thank you for helping me out man!


*high five* I'm so happy!
