Help, just lost parking lights

I just installed white led parking lights (the ones closest to the fender) and everything worked. Then I installed white/amber switchbacks for the dtrl/turn signals (the ones closest to the grill), now my dtrls, parking lights, and tail lights are all out. I checked every fuse and they are all fine. Thoughts?

The tail light fuse is behind the coin tray to the left of the steering wheel, unless it's changed on a 2012. Have you checked that one? Or just the underhood box?

There's more fuses inside the cab??? I don't have my owner's manual with me so I was not aware of that (only had the truck 2 weeks). I'll see if I can find it.

I put some Leds in a 99 Tacoma and popped the light fuse. Check for voltage at the sockets. Leds can be installed backwards and not work. It's best to test the polarity of the socket with a voltmeter and find the polarity of the led light with a drill battery and some short wires.

The tail light fuse under the dash was blown. I replaced it and then tested it with the oem bulbs and everything worked. I installed the leds and tried again and immediately heard the fuse pop. If I have the oem dtrl/turn signal and led parking lights it's fine. As as soon as I install the switchbacks for the dtrl/turn signals it blows the fuse.
