Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The park lamps are powered directly by the headlamp switch. Power originates at fuse 4 in the box inside, goes to the switch and then directly to the lights. If you lost all park lamps at once and fuse 4 is good then the problem is either going to be in the headlamp switch or an open circuit in the wiring.

The next thing you'll want to do is check the switch and connector for heat damage. If ok then check for power on the tan/white wire. If there is no power and there is power at the fuse and it's unblown then you have an open circuit in between the fuse and switch.

If power is ok then turn the park lamps on and check for power on the brown wire. If there is none then replace the switch.

If you do have power leaving the brown wire then there is an open circuit between the switch and lights.
