Sounds like you created a wiring problem while installing the new bulb. Go over your work and look for any crossed, frayed or loose wires disturbed in the replacement process. If no cause is found, then recharge your battery and pull fuses to see what circuit is causing the drain (will need an amp meter to detect current flow).
