Parking light questions.

I made a post about this on the urgent section but the traffic there seems light so I wanted to ask the 6.4 people.
I have a 2008 F250.
My remote start has stopped working. A Viper 5901. While unplugging/plugging in the alarm to try and remedy the problems, the harness was misaligned and the domelights and parking lights quit working.
I replaced the domelight fuse and that now works.
When I put the parking lights fuse in it immediately blows.
Even with the two switches undone, the headlight switch and the dimmer switch, the fuse (22 I think) blows instantly.
I disconnected the batterys for a while and discharged them.
I don't see anything melted or burnt.
Any help is appreciated.

Do the parking lights come on without blowing the fuse with the alarm pcm unplugged?

That was gonna be my next step. I see what you're saying but it SHOULDN'T be a issue.
The polarity of parking light output is controlled by a jumper so it's not like it could've reset itself but I will still check it. I guess there is always a chance something fried in the alarm brain during the mishap.
I ran out of time and had to get back to work.

Well it is definitely the alarm brain, I pulled it out and put the fuse in and no blowing.
The lights came on no problem, I haven't tried to plug it back in yet, wans check the wires and all first.
I have done a ton of alarms, that used to be my job and not once did I have a brain go out except for on the base models.
