Parking lights Issue
2000 f-350 Dually CCLB
Last night at my parents house it was raining not heavy rain but a light drizzel.. I fire up my truck to let warm up and i turn the lights on. everything works fine. 10 minutes later i remembered i had to check my oil. shut off the truck but i leave the lights on so i could hold the dipstick up to see the oil level. Added some oil and shut the hood. the hood was open maybe 5 minutes in the rain... drove home about a mile to my place and as soon as i pull into the driveway boom.... no parking lights no dash lights, headlights are on and brake lights and turn signals work just no parking lights... hmm i replaced the fuse and it blew. fuse probably hasted 5 seconds and the lights were really dim. thinking i have a short somewhere..
Under hood fuse box: fuse #8, 15Amp
I did replace my drivers side rear fender marker light with a new plug because the last one got hot and melted... i probably should have been more concerened about it. that was about a month ago..
Anyone ever have an issue like this? Bone stock wiring and theres no splices to run other lights or anything like that. Could something have shorted with the water falling in the engine bay when i had the hood open? i find that hard to believe...
If anyone has some input i would appreciate it.
